Alright, exempt and nonprofit organizations — it’s that time of year!
We’re only a few weeks away from the deadline to file your tax exempt information return as a 501(c)(3) organization!
That’s right, your deadline is May 16th! Not ready yet? Here’s what you need to do.
E-file with ExpressTaxExempt
The most important thing you can do is to take a deep breath! While the idea of taxes can be daunting to many, you don’t have to suffer through it this year.
Why is that? Well, because you’re e-filing with ExpressTaxExempt.
With ExpressTaxExempt, you are not only e-filing with the premier tax exempt filing service out there, you’re saving time that can be dedicated to whatever cause you champion.
Plus, we make e-filing your taxes as easy as turning on a computer, logging into the website, and answering the interview style prompts.
File Form 8868 for More Time
Still not ready? Don’t freak out! Just e-file Form 8868 and receive an automatic 3-month extension of time to file your tax exempt tax returns.
If you need more time to file your Form 990 returns, just know that the deadline is also the same, May 16th!
And just in case you need more time after the first 3 months, you can e-file for another 3 months after that. These will be non-automatic, though, so there needs to be a legitimate reason.
Ready for Form 990? Here’s What You Do Instead!
Alright, for the few of you out there who have already finished e-filing (or you run on a fiscal year different than the calendar year), what should you do?
Maybe it’s time to plan and implement a fundraiser. PTA groups can start now to coincide with the end of the school year!
With all the free time, you can start an email, social media, or video marketing plan.
And if you have all your bases covered, maybe you can plan a personal vacation! The possibilities are endless.
So sign up for ExpressTaxExempt today and start your 990 return now! I mean, that way you have all your bases covered come May 16th.
