12A : Tax Exemption
NGOs are exempt from Income Tax. However, this is not automatic. You need to apply to Income Tax Office to get this exemption. You can get exemption from tax on society’s income under section 12A.
This exemption is available for all non-profit NGOs. Unfortunately, many NGOs have not applied for this even after 10-15 years of working. This delay can be forgiven if you apply with sufficient reasons.
