ExpressTaxExempt proudly introduces a new service designed specifically for small nonprofit groups. Exempt organizations with gross receipts less than $50,000 can now e-file 990-N forms
with the IRS just by using employer identification numbers (EINs).
With our new e-Postcard application
, we’ve taken away the need to enter any filing details or drawn-out account information, so transmitting e-Postcards is faster than ever before! The entire process is quick, easy, and secure – using ExpressTaxExempt is now simple as 1-2-3!
Step 1: Search Your Organization’s EIN
Enter the employer identification number to view the filing history for your nonprofit – this shows each year you filed a 990-N (e-Postcard) and the years which you haven’t filed. Even if you don’t need to e-file, you can always use this first step to search any nonprofit and see when it last filed.
Step 2: Select a Tax Year to File
Choose the available tax years to file your e-Postcard and then enter your email address and a password – this automatically creates your free account with ExpressTaxExempt. If you already have an account, then just enter your password to proceed with the filing. Having an account is necessary for you to correct any rejected forms and receive email notifications about your filing status.
Important: The IRS supports e-filing for three consecutive years only – you won’t be able to file for years further back electronically.
Step 3: Review Form and Transmit to the IRS
Check that the information generated on your e-Postcard is current and correct. It should list the following:
- Tax Year Period
- Organization Name and Address
- Primary Officer Name and Address
All of this information comes directly from the IRS and your organization’s previously filed 990-N forms. All you have to do is confirm gross receipts are less than $50,000 and then submit your e-Postcard. If you need to change any organization or primary officer details, you can “Edit” before transmitting.
And that’s all there is to it! You can print a copy of your 990-N (e-Postcard) immediately after sending it to the IRS, and we’ll email you an approval letter once the e-file is accepted. You can check your filing status any time by entering your return number and email address. ExpressTaxExempt makes it super easy to e-file before the May 15 deadline.
