We filed our 1023-EZ at the beginning of December. Haven't heard anything yet.

> For those possibly not aware, the EZ form is new as of summer 2014, is half the price to submit, is only 3 pages long, only for orgs making less than $50k a year, and reportedly takes only 2-4 weeks to receive your determination letter. The downside is that you are “agreeing under penalty or perjury” that you qualify to be a 501c3 without the IRS doing much checking. The IRS has promised it’s not setting people up to be audited by using this form, but the vetting process is obviously abrupt.
