What Taxes Does Your Nonprofit Need to File?


As the seasons change and the holidays quickly approach, it’s pretty easy to unintentionally put tax
filing concerns on the back burner.
While some organizations may have already filed their 990 forms this year, others that operate on a fiscal tax year might have a deadline that is right around the corner. 
If your tax exempt organization operated on a fiscal tax year of July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017, you must file Form 990-N, Form 990-EZ, Form 990, Form 990-PF or Form 1120-POL by next Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
Filing Form 990-N (e-Postcard) with ExpressTaxExempt is very easy and can be completed within minutes. With just three steps, you can file and transmit your Form 990-N (e-Postcard) directly to the IRS and keep your exempt status. 

How To File Form 990-N

  1. Search Organization’s EIN – Enter your Employer Identification Number (EIN) to view filing history and e-file your Form 990-N to the IRS. 
  2. Select Filing Year – Choose the available tax year from your filing history list to e-file and create an account to review your filing details. You can also update any of your organization information if necessary. 
  3. Review & Transmit to the IRS – Complete payment information and transmit your e-Postcard to the IRS instantly. You can review your payment receipt or summary of e-Postcard once you transmit your return.
