An organization must retain all the records necessary enough to substantiate any part of income, deduction, or credit for 3 years from the date when the return is filed or the date when the return is due.
There are certain records like determination confirming the organization's tax-exempt status, articles of incorporation, by-laws, and board minutes which need to be retained permanently. Other than this, all employment tax records must be retained for 4 years.
