Make Sure Your Organization is in The Clear After The Tax Deadline


As the biggest tax day of the year approaches, your initial instinct may be to handle your personal tax filings; but what about your exempt organization?

Your Federal Tax Return is not the only tax form due this tax season. ExpressTaxExempt is here to make sure your organization is in the clear after the tax deadline.


Is My Organization Required To File Form 990?

If your nonprofit or tax-exempt organization operates on a fiscal tax year beginning in December and running until November, you must file one of the following 990 Forms by April 17th:

Form 990-N (e-Postcard): Filed by tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts less than or equal to $50,000.

Form 990-EZ: Filed by tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts that come to less than $200,000 and $500,000 in total assets.

Form 990: Exempt organizations with more than or equal to $200,000 in gross receipts or total assets more than or equal to $500,000 typically file Form 990.

Form 990-PF: Filed by Exempt & Taxable Private Foundations as well as Non-exempt Charitable Trusts which the IRS treats as private foundations.
