The day has finally arrived for exempt organizations – the last BIG day to e-file IRS Form 990
and Form 990-EZ.
If your nonprofit or charity runs on a calendar tax year, and you filed Extension Form 8868 Part II this past August, then you have until midnight local time to complete your tax return.
Apply for Extra Time!
There may still be a chance for your tax-exempt group to e-file an IRS Form 8868
extension; however, your organization must follow a fiscal tax year with specific end dates. If your tax period ends on June 30, you’re eligible to e-file Form 8868 Part I and get an automatic 3-month extension.
If your organization’s tax year ends on March 31, and you filed an extension for the August deadline, you can e-file Form 8868 Part II for an additional, not-automatic 3-month extension. You’ll need to include a reasonable explanation why you’re requesting extra time.
Important: You can now e-file a tax extension from anywhere with your favorite iOS or Android device – download our FREE ExpressTaxExempt – Form 8868 mobile app. Tax extensions are not available for IRS Form 990-N (e-Postcard).

You must transmit your tax return by 11:59 pm local time to avoid any late penalty fees. If you have no choice but to file late, the IRS charges $20 each day your return is not sent – $100 each day if your organization’s gross receipts are greater than $1 million. Maximum penalties can go up to $50,000 or 5% of total revenues, whichever is the smallest amount.
