[hackerspaces] Time to process US 501(3)c application?

We sent our application in for Tampa Hackerspace at the end of December.
The last week of February, we received a letter acknowledging receipt. The
letter said that it would take either three or six months to process
depending on if anything in the application was flagged. There was no
indication which path we were selected for.

It did say that after six months, if we've heard nothing, we would be
welcome to call to follow up.

So, if the letter is true, elapsed times of 5-8 months are not unheard of.
The couple of applications I reviewed as part of our submission were
actually done in about three months so there is hope.


Our space, the Red Mountain Makers, in Birmingham AL, is about to file our
501(3)c paperwork.
