All In The Family: Group Exemption


Three Years Ago
“Congratulations! You’ve created your first tax-exempt organization.”

Two Years Later
“Wow buddy, two more organizations to the list. You must be very proud!”

Last Year
“You... don’t slow down, do you? More additions, how do you find the time?”

So, you have other organizations that operate in conjunction with your main one. A situation such as that is considered a Group in which your central organization is the Parent and your branching organizations are Subordinates. As in any family, it’s the parents’ job to keep their children, or, in this case, subordinates, well and happy. One way to keep your “children” well and happy is by gaining a Group Exemption, which eliminates each of your subordinates applying for a tax exempt status on their own.

What is a Group Exemption
A group exemption allows the central or parent organization to confirm that its subordinates are eligible for exemption and to include each subordinate under its cover for tax-exempt purposes. This exemption comes in the form of a letter from the IRS to the parent organization and grants tax exemption to one or more of the subordinates.

The method is created to decrease the paperwork for the taxpayers and the IRS when affiliated entities are the same in their purpose, structure, and operations.

Obtaining a Group Exemption Letter
To pursue a group exemption letter, you must, of course, first gain recognition of your own tax-exempt status. After that, you can obtain a group exemption letter if you have one or more subordinate organizations included in your general supervision or control.

Keep in mind that your parent and subordinate organizations don’t have to be categorized under the same tax section; however, the IRS has decided that some fundraising techniques and activities aren’t cleared for group exemptions. For more details, visit the IRS webpage.

How to Be Included in a Group Exemption Letter?
To add a subordinate in your group exemption, your parent organization has to certify that the subordinate is organized and operated conforming to sample documents your parent organization submits in order to support its subordinates’ tax exemption.

For a subordinate to be included, you must authenticate that it:
  • Affiliates with the parent and is subject to the parent’s general supervision or control
  • Exempts under the same IRC 501(c) paragraph as all your other subordinates
  • Excludes as a private foundation or a foreign organization
  • Operates on the same tax year as the parent
  • Information Needed for a Group Extension Letter

As the parent company, you also have to provide certain information on behalf of your subordinates. Along with proving that your subordinate organization meets the requirements, you must submit a letter that states
  • A description of your subordinates’ principle purposes and activities, which includes financial information
  • A sample copy of your subordinates’ adopted, uniformed governing instrument
  • An assertion that your subordinates’ purposes and activities are as set forth in the representations provided in the above description and governing instrument
  • A statement that each subordinate has submitted a written request to be included in the group exemption letter
  • A list of your previous recognized subordinates that have tax-exempt status

Group Returns
Once the tax-exempt status has been achieved for your subordinate organizations under a group extension letter, you can then file a group return covering all of your subordinates. Keep in mind that you’ll still have to file a separate return for your parent organization; furthermore, your subordinates are still required to file their own Form 990-T if they are subject to tax on unrelated business income.

A group return can only include your subordinates that have, in writing, authorization to be added in the return. Your group return must also be based on the tax period of the parent organization and your subordinates’ information can be provided by:
  • Separate schedules for each subordinate attached
  • A consolidated basis for each subordinate and the parent on one group return

For more details on group extension requirements or returns, visit the IRS website.

Keep it all in the family by e-filing your group return with Express990. We support each 990 Form for tax-exempt organizations (Form 990, Form 990-EZ, Form 990-N (e-Postcard)) and provide expert help with live professionals so you’ll be covered like family looking out for family.

By Year’s End




Twenty-two weeks left until Thanksgiving?
Twenty-seven until Christmas?!
Time certainly doesn’t wait on anyone, but can you believe how fast we’ve blown through the first half of the year? The weather was just beginning to warm up a couple of months ago and now it’s hot, scorching hot, depending on your location. In about two months time, it’s going to start cooling down again. Where does the time go?

By running a tax-exempt organization, you probably have less time than most, especially if your organization operates on a fiscal tax year and your return deadline falls within the second half of the year. Along with filing the appropriate tax exempt return (Form 990, Form 990-EZ, Form 990-N (e-Postcard)), here are seven other items that specialists advise their tax-exempt clients to have done by the end of the year.

1. Annual Meeting
Most corporate bylaws and state statutes require that the board of directors meet at least once every year. Typically, the meeting is where your board or voting members fill any open spots, appoint officers, approve budget, and pretty much make other executive-type decisions.

2. Annual Report
Along with the annual meeting, there’s also the annual report that’s required to be filed with your organization’s state of incorporation and any other states you may be registered to do business in. Failure to file this report could lead to less of a good standing with the state and ultimately administrative dissolution. The year’s end is an ideal time to make sure all filings are up to date and to determine whether your organization will conduct business within new areas that may require registration.

3. Solicitation Registrations
Make sure your solicitation registrations are current. A lot of states and local areas require tax-exempt organizations to register before you can solicit funds in that area. Now, the word solicit is broadly defined and may surround any request targeted to residents within the area.
Most locations require renewals every year, which makes the year’s end a good time to figure out whether your organization is registered in all of the locations where you plan to raise funds in the following year. And it’s also the best time to check the status of renewals in locations you’re already registered.

4. Gift Administration Issues
To make sure that terms and restrictions are recognized, the year’s end is a proper time to review your organization’s grant agreements.

5. Insurance Policies
Examples include general liability, officer liability, etc. Use this time to determine whether there are adequate limits of coverage and if your organization’s current activities are covered by its policies.

6. Private Foundation Considerations
To avoid excise tax penalties, you could spend your funds in charitable activities or make grants to public charities. Contact a certified tax accountant to find out how much could be spent. You’re also going to want to look back through your business holdings of private foundations and disqualified persons to make sure they don’t altogether exceed 20% of voting influence.

7. Thank Your Donors with Proper Gift Receipts
If donors don’t receive a gift receipt by the end of the year to confirm their tax deduction, they may feel inclined to not donate again. Also, make an effort to ensure that contributions from donors are properly recognized and in compliance with IRS protocol.

Whether you want to end your year strongly or begin the second half of the year in good standing, Express990 can help with the e-filing of any of the 990 forms for tax-exempt organizations. Express990 works closely with the IRS to bring you a safe, secure, and accurate e-filing process, backed by expert professionals that will save you time and money.

For assistance with e-filing any of our available 990 forms, contact our live support by phone Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm, Eastern Standard Time, at (704) 839-2321, by email at support@expresstaxexempt.com, or by live chat at the Express990 website

Reinstating Tax-Exempt Status




In the city of Taxtropolis, there are only two kinds of people… Those who file their tax return on time and those who do not. These city streets are unforgiving to any level of offenders. But… there is a change sweeping through. A hero, known only as Rev. Proc. 2014-11, is making it possible for offenders to streamline the process of regaining their tax-exempt status.

No one knows how or why Rev. Proc. arrived from the land of IRS-tron. But witnesses say that Rev. Proc. works in three main ways in which an organization that has lost its tax-exempt status can apply for retroactive reinstatement to the date of revocation.

Level 1 Offenders
The first level of offenders consists of those who have
  • Lost their tax-exempt status for the very first time
  • Failed to file a required Form 990-N (e-Postcard) or Form 990-EZ for three consecutive years
  • Applied for retroactive reinstatement with a Form 1023, or a Form 1024, within 15 months from the day their status was revoked
For first level offenders, Rev. Proc. can permit you to regain your tax-exempt status as of the date of revocation without any questions asked. You will not be required to file a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) for the prior year or a Form 990-EZ for any year in which you were required.

Your organization can be reinstated, if you:
  • Re-submit an Application for Exemption with “Streamlined Retroactive Reinstatement” written across the top
  • Pay the applicable user fee

Level 2 Offenders
The second level of offenders are those who have
  • Failed to file a required Form 990 (Long Form) for three consecutive years
  • Applied for retroactive reinstatement within 15 months from the day their status was revoked

Section 5 of Rev. Proc. allows organizations in this predicament to make an argument for reasonable cause. If reasonable cause is established for any of the three consecutive years you failed to file, you can qualify for reinstatement by
  • Applying for retroactive reinstatement within 15 months from the day your status was revoked
  • Paying the applicable user fee
  • Establishing your organization had reasonable cause why it failed to file for one of the three consecutive years
  • Completing and file the proper tax returns for all the tax years in the consecutive 3-year period that you missed
  • Including a statement with the reinstatement request confirming that you have filed the required annual returns

Level 3 Offenders
The third level of offenders are
  • ANY tax-exempt organization, whether you’re required to file a Form 990-N, 990-EZ, or 990, that is applying for reinstatement AFTER 15 months from the day the status was revoked
Along with following the reinstatement steps for Level 2 Offenders, Section 6 of Rev. Proc. requires you to provide a reasonable cause for each of the three consecutive years you failed to file.

Second chances are sometimes hard to come by in any situation. Reduce the need to be rescued by Rev. Proc. in Taxtropolis by quickly and easily e-filing with Express990. We offer support for any of the 990 forms for tax-exempt organizations and you can e-file your Form 990-N (e-Postcard) FREE for the current tax year.

For any questions or assistance with our service to e-file, feel free to contact our live, expert help at our headquarters in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

The Tax-Exempt, Nonprofit Leaders Club

Welcome to the Tax-Exempt, Nonprofit Leaders Club, or The TEN-LC, as we like to call ourselves. We pride ourselves in preparing and filing our own legal documents personally for our tax-exempt organizations. Nothing wrong with saving a little money here and there, right? Based on your application and lengthy references from your peers, you stand as a prime candidate for initiation.

But… before we begin, we have to lay some ground rules down. After accepting these rules, you can’t say you didn’t know; after all, there is a reputation to uphold here. There are several mistakes we see rookies make each year; these rules are based from the most common “oops” we’ve seen. Following these rules are expected, you break them… consequences are dire. *wink*

Rule #1: Satisfy the IRS tax provisions along with the State.
Wannabes would just file using the state’s form without including an attachment with the appropriate tax provisions that the IRS requires tax-exempt organizations to have. That’s a no-no. That’s a BIG TEN-LC No-No! And you’ll most likely end up with a taxable organization doing something like that.

What’s worse is once you receive your determination letter from the IRS, it’ll only be retroactive to the date of your corrected return and not your original incorporation date.

Rule #2: Think twice about forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC).
Generally, an LLC with individuals or other private interests as members cannot qualify for tax-exempt status. The only way an LLC could qualify for tax exemption is if its members are exempt entities. The reason being that membership interest reflects ownership interest and the IRS won’t view an organization with private owners operating for exclusive tax-exempt purposes.

Rule #3: Create customized bylaws for your tax-exempt organization.
Too many times have rookies used bylaws obviously meant for a different type of organization or written to follow another state’s rules… Don’t go there, even if you were given GPS navigation, don’t...go...there.

In a similar fashion, documents requiring compliance with open meeting law, third party approvals, or contain complicated voting member plans further proves that customized bylaws are needed for organizations.

Rule #4: Classify employees correctly.
As one of the most biggest screw-ups of new and existing tax-exempt organization, a misclassification of employees can lead to penalties, back taxes, or, worse case scenario, legal prosecution. For example, an organization hired a worker as an independent contractor and, as such, the organization didn’t buy worker’s compensation insurance. The worker got into a work related injury and the organization was sued to cover the medical bills.

Rule #5: Respect rule number six.
And that is…

Rule #6: File the appropriate Form 990 for your tax-exempt organization.
Beginners don’t realize that to receive tax-exempt status, they should act like a tax-exempt organization from the day of incorporation. That means filing a Form 990 even if you’re a start-up, even if you had a short tax year, even if you brought in no revenue at all. Forms break down like this:
  • Form 990 (Long Form) - For tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts greater than or equal to $200,000 and total assets greater than or equal to $500,000.
  • Form 990-EZ - For tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts less than $200,000 and total assets less than $500,000.
  • Form 990-N (e-Postcard) - For tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts less than $50,000.
These returns are due on 15th day of the 5th month after your tax end date and, if you fail to file for three consecutive years, you’ll automatically lose your tax-exempt status.

Rise within our ranks by e-filing your Form 990 with Express990. We support all three 990 forms and offer expert help with live professionals from our Rock Hill, South Carolina office. For any assistance with e-filing our available 990 forms, you can contact us by phone (704-839-2321, Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm, Eastern Standard Time), by email (support@expresstaxexempt.com), or by live chat (www.expresstaxexempt.com).

Form 990-N & The Church




Alloweth the congregation to gather; thither is news to beest spread throughout the land. From the booketh of the IRS, thither art rules governing the church as a small organization. No needeth to receiveth the fires and pitchforks or shelter the livestock. The church wilt remain as right as rain. For the church, mine brothers and sisters, is an exception from the rule. As listed in the booketh of… *sighs deeply*

Is reading Shakespearean English as exhausting as creating it? To be able to read, write, and speak like that on a regular basis takes incredible skill… or an unholy amount of practice.

Form 990-N (e-Postcard)
To get back on track, small tax-exempt organizations that have gross receipts less than or equal to $50,000 are required to file a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) every year. You know this already. But there are exceptions to this rule, one being that churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches aren’t required to file.

“Churches are completely exempt from filing?”
Well, yes and no. It’s a resounding, choir-enthused “Yes” if you’re talking about a single church that’s doing activities that are in compliance with its mission. But, if you’re a church leader, you’ll want to be aware of any ministries or organizations related to your church that may need to comply with the annual filing.

Specialists advise that it’s the “integrated auxiliaries” stipulation that churches should be aware of. Typically, integrated auxiliaries are things like seminaries, women's auxiliaries, and schools.

“What does that mean for the church?”
Your church has to have the majority control or be the majority financial supporter of its integrated auxiliaries’ governance in order for the exemption to remain. For instance, if your church financially invests only 25% into a school program or a group, that program or group will still have to annually file if they want a tax-exempt status. It doesn’t matter that program or group is in direct affiliation with your church.

Determining Integrated Auxiliary Status
In the IRS Publication 1828, Churches and Religious Organizations, you can find information about an integrated auxiliary of a church. What you’ll want to find is how affiliation can be recognized by the IRS through facts and circumstances other than a church's majority control over the auxiliary's governing body.

If you find that tax-exempt organizations affiliated with your church still need to file, then it would be best to file on time depending on the organization’s tax end date.

So, in a true Shakespearean fashion, guide thine shining light and beest an example for thy brothers and sisters by quickly and easily e-filing your Form 990-N (e-Postcard) with Express990.
It’s FREE to e-file for the current year and can take less than ten minutes to complete and transmit to the IRS.

Level Grinding Your Tax-Exempt Status


Managing a tax-exempt organization isn’t always sunshine and perfect endings, we know. While your main concern is meeting the goals of your organization, you probably have 10 or 15 extra matters that require your attention, least of all your financial obligations in order to keep your organization up and running smoothly. You already know that you’re required to file one of the Form 990 series to avoid automatic revocation your tax-exempt status, but… It’s Levels To This!

We couldn’t agree more. There are levels to maintaining a tax-exempt status and losing it is like being beaten in an epic boss battle in which you’ll have to start over. No one wants that. So build up your EXP (experience) with these tips and level up your tax-exempt status to its ULTIMATE FORM!!!

Level 1: Prove Your Tax-Exempt Organization Acts In Agreement With Its Mission
Along with following IRS filing regulations, have your organization’s employees or Board of Directors compare activities with the mission on record with the IRS to make sure they flow in harmony.

Level 2: Elect Dedicated Members
Make sure that those who are serving as your Board of Directors are committed to your organization’s yearly reporting responsibilities to the IRS as well as to any other state filing requirements.

Level 3: Stay Informed & Avoid Participating In Excessive Or Restricted Lobbying Activities
Too much lobbying can result in your organization being fined or stripped of exempt status as described in a section 501(c)(3). If lobbying is necessary, you should think about possibly creating a separate affiliation to engage in these activities.

Level 4: Guarantee That Each Of Your Organization’s Employees’ Compensation Is Evaluated Annually
Compensation should be in sync with industry guidelines so no one receives an excessive amount of pay or benefits, which could inadvertently conflict with your organization’s mission. Overpaying can result in a loss of tax-exempt status or impose an excise tax on those who approved and received the compensation.

Level 5: Outsource Assistance To Stay In Compliance
Working alongside an association management company (AMC) can help reduce the amount of responsibilities, minimize risk, and keep your organization up-to-date and compliant with tax laws and regulations. AMC’s can assist in day-to-day operations as an extension of your organization’s staff or volunteers.

Level 6: File The Appropriate Form 990 For Your Organization On Time
There are 3 different 990 forms for tax-exempt organizations:
  • Form 990 (Long Form) - Your organization has gross receipts greater than or equal to $200,000 and total assets greater than or equal to $500,000.
  • Form 990-EZ - Your organization has gross receipts less than $200,000 and total assets less than $500,000.
  • Form 990-N (e-Postcard) - Your organization has gross receipts less than $50,000.
The deadline to file the appropriate return is the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of your tax period. Failing to file for three consecutive years will result in an automatic loss, or “Game Over,” of your tax-exempt status.


Gain an extra power boost by e-filing your return with Express990. We support all three 990 forms, and you can get your Form 990-N (e-Postcard) for the current year e-filed for FREE.

Beat the Tax Heat with Cool Form 990 Tips

As the summer season approaches, temperatures are heating up and things are getting H.A.W.T. Hot! If your tax return deadline falls within the summer months, then you’re well aware that the heat is on with the scrambling of documents and receipts in order to successfully file on time. We understand how filing an IRS form can set the pressure on high, but you don’t have to rise beyond your boiling point… (Are these heat references doing anything for you?)

Anyway, here are six tips to filing a Form 990 that’ll help keep your cool and get you back to enjoying the finer things of Summer.
  • File the Right Version of Form 990 for your Tax Period
Be sure that you’re filing the appropriate form for your organization’s tax period. There are three main forms in the 990 series for tax-exempt organizations:

  • Form 990 (Long Form) - For tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts greater than or equal to $200,000 and total assets greater than or equal to $500,000.
  • Form 990-EZ - For tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts less than $200,000 and total assets less than $500,000.
  • Form 990-N (e-Postcard) - For small tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts less than $50,000.

By filing the improper form for your tax period, you could be subjected to penalties.

  • Double-Check your Identification Information
Make sure your organization’s name and address are current and that your Employer Identification Number (EIN) is accurate. Also, be sure to indicate the correct Internal Revenue Code Subsection for your organization, which can be found in your determination letter.

  • Complete Parts I through XII
Reduce your chances of having a rejected return by fully completing Parts I through XII of your tax return; all organizations that file a Form 990 must do this.

  • Be Sure to Sign the Return
Without a proper signature in Part II, Signature Block, your form will be considered as incomplete and late, which could cause you to incur penalty charges. An officer of the organization must be the one who signs the form. An officer can be the president, vice president, treasurer, assistant treasurer, chief accounting officer, or tax officer. For a trust, the authorized trustee must sign.

  • Don’t Include Unnecessary Personal Identifying Information
Your completed Form 990 must be made public by yourself and the IRS and, by putting personal information not required by the IRS on the return, you could be inadvertently contributing to identity theft.

  • Determine and Complete Each Required Schedule
You can determine which schedules are needed by completing Part IV, Checklist of Required Schedules, of your tax return. Make sure that you’ve fully completed and have attached all required schedules. When completing these schedules,

  • Carefully read the instructions for each required schedule
  • Complete all applicable parts and lines
  • Answer yes or no to each question (unless otherwise instructed for a particular question)
  • Make an entry on all total lines including the number zero when appropriate

For a detailed breakdown of schedules for Form 990 (Long Form), check out http://www.expresstaxexempt.com/form-990-schedules/

Record-Keeping & Form 990 Schedules

It should be no question that your tax-exempt organization must comply with the IRS tax rules and, to do so, you must keep books and records documenting sources of receipts and expenditures that are reported on your annual return and any other tax returns that are filed. Even if you file a return or not, these records must be managed and validate

  • Activities conducted
  • Income received
  • Expenses incurred 

The IRS inspects returns from organizations and there must be records that back up the items reported. With a complete set of records, the process can be done more smoothly.

When filing a Form 990, these records are described as a variety of disclosure and compliance requirements called Schedules; in a nutshell, Schedules

  • Vary depending on your type of organization.
  • Have specific titles and require assorted sets of information.
  • Provide the IRS with specific information about your organization’s activities.

The facts needed to complete these forms are the same records that support income, expenses, and credits reported on your tax-exempt organization’s annual tax returns. So, they should be carefully recorded and filed within your organization’s archives throughout the tax year.

Express990 makes it as simple as possible to fill out Form 990 schedules. For a complete list of Schedules that you may need to complete, check out http://www.expresstaxexempt.com/form-990-schedules/
