Today's the Deadline to File 990 Series Returns: Tax990 Facilitates Streamlined E-filing With Acclaimed Features!

ROCK HILL, SC / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2024 / Today is significant for nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations - it's the deadline to e-file their 990 series returns with the IRS. Not meeting this deadline could have serious consequences, impacting their tax compliance and, in turn, how they're viewed by the public. It's essential for maintaining trust and credibility within their communities.

Organizations with a 990 Series Deadline Today

According to the IRS, nonprofits that have obtained tax-exempt status must file their 990 return on or before the 15th day of the 5th month following the end of the organization's accounting period. This means that today (May 15, 2024) is the deadline for organizations that follow the calendar tax year, with an accounting period that ended on December 31, 2023.

Also, organizations that filed an 8868 extension for their deadline on November 15, 2023, are required to complete their 990 filings by today.

990 Series Returns that are Due Today

It's important to note that the 990 series comprises different forms, and organizations must choose and file the one that applies. Here are the criteria for filing each of the 990 forms.

Form 990-N - Applicable to organizations with gross receipts of $50,000 or less.

Form 990-EZ - Applicable to organizations with gross receipts < $200,000 and assets < $500,000.

Form 990 - Applicable to organizations with gross receipts of $200,000 or more (or) assets of $500,000

Form 990-PF - Applicable to organizations classified as Private Foundations.

Form 990-T - Applicable to organizations with unrelated business income of $1000 or more.

In addition to these 990 forms, nonprofits may also be required to file certain other forms with their state agencies to fulfill their annual filing obligations at the state level. For instance, nonprofits that originate and operate in the State of California must file CA Form 199 with FTB on or before May 15th.

If the organizations aren't ready to meet the deadline, they always have the option to request an extension from the IRS using Form 8868. Upon filing 8868, the IRS will grant an automatic extension of up to 6 months.

Failing to file a 990 or extension on or before this deadline may result in penalties ranging from $20-$120 / each delayed day for nonprofits. Moreover, if a nonprofit fails to file a 990 return for three consecutive years, its tax-exempt status will be revoked by the IRS.
