e-file form 990

The May 16, 2022 Form 990 Series Return deadline is only one week away. Nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations that file using a calendar tax year or who filed Form 8868 in November may need to meet Form 990 filing requirements for the 2021 tax year by May 16, 2022!

ExpressTaxExempt is here to help your organization meet the May 16 deadline on time to avoid potential penalties. Take a look at this quick review of your IRS due date, the IRS’s e-filing mandate for the 2021 tax year, and the 990 series forms your organization may be required to file. 

May 16, 2022 Form 990 Deadline

Form 990 deadlines are determined by the 15th day of the 5th month following the end of an organization’s accounting period. This means that May 16 is a major deadline for many nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations filing under a calendar tax year. If this is the case for your organization, you should file your 990 series return on or before this deadline in order to avoid any IRS penalties, including losing your tax-exempt status. 

An organization that fails to file Form 990 three years in a row runs the risk of the revocation of its tax-exempt status.
