E-file Form 990-N Before the Year Ends!

E-file Form 990-N
E-file Form 990-N Before the Year Ends!
There are only two full months left within the year, and if your small tax-exempt organization needs to file a tax return, ExpressTaxExempt.com has you covered. It’s not too late to transmit your IRS Form 990-N (e-Postcard) before the end of the year!

IRS Form 990-N (e-Postcard)
The 990-N serves as an electronic notice and is for small organizations that make less than $50,000 - and that’s pretty much all you’re reporting to the IRS. There is no need for any exact amounts or schedules. The form is also electronic-only; you won’t find a paper version anywhere!

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt.com
We make e-filing IRS Form 990-N (e-Postcard) as simple as 1-2-3! With our quick and easy steps, you can complete and transmit your form within minutes:

  1. 1. Create a FREE account at ExpressTaxExempt.com
  2. 2. Enter your Basic Organization Details
  3. 3. Select the appropriate Tax Year
  4. 4. Confirm your Gross Receipt
  5. 5. Review Summary and Audit Report
  6. 6. Authorize and Transmit to IRS

After submitting your 990-N, you’ll gain access to a printable copy of your e-Postcard summary and receive real-time email notification about your filing status. If the IRS rejects your e-file for any reason, we’ll identify the issue so you can make corrections and re-transmit at no extra cost!

IRS Penalties
There isn’t much of a penalty for filing Form 990-N (e-Postcard) late, which is why you still have until the end of the year to file. It doesn’t matter if your deadline was months ago - you’re still able to e-file.
There are consequences for not filing at all - fail to file for three consecutive years, and you’ll lose your tax-exempt status. You also can’t file an IRS Form 8868 extension form for e-Postcards. If you can’t file before the deadline, be sure to file as soon as possible afterward.

Important: The IRS e-filing system only supports three consecutive filing years at a time. As the new year begins, the oldest year gets dropped from support. These final two months will be the last time an organization can e-file for 2013. Your only option is to paper file IRS Form 990-EZ for any discontinued years.
