Don't Miss Your Filing Deadline: Keep Your Tax-Exempt Status

Form 990-N e-filers and nonprofit organization leaders, don't miss an important upcoming deadline for tax exempt organizations. Organizations that operate on a fiscal tax year may need to file their return by Monday in order to keep their current tax exempt status. 

Form 990-N is due every year by the 15th day of the 5th month after the close of your tax year. For those that have a fiscal year that ended in February or March, your filing deadline is right around the corner: 

-February 28/29 (Fiscal Tax Year End Date) -- Due on Monday, July 17 (July 15 falls on a weekend) 
-March 31 (Fiscal Tax Year End Date) -- Due on Tuesday, August 15
-Click Here to file your organization's Form 990-N (e-Postcard) 

Filing Form 990-N (e-Postcard) is extremely easy and can be completed in three simple steps with ExpressTaxExempt:  
  1. -Search Organization's EIN
    • Enter your Employer Identification Number (EIN) to view filing history and e-file your Form 990-N to the IRS. 
  2. -Select Filing Year
    • Choose the available tax year from your filing history list to e-file and create an account to review your filing details. You can also update any of your organization information if necessary. 
  3. -Review & Transmit to the IRS
    • Complete payment information and transmit your e-Postcard to the IRS instantly. You can review your payment receipt or summary of your e-Postcard once you transmit your return. 
Although there is no penalty for filing Form 990-N late, organizations that fail to file for three consecutive years will automatically lose their tax-exempt status. If things are hectic for you right now, no need to worry. You can simply file an extension with ExpressExtension and receive an extra 6 months to file.
