Let’s Make A Deal: How To Be A Winner On Deadline Day

If you just realized that your tax-exempt organization’s Form 990 is due, I’m pretty sure you’re not jumping for joy like this former Let’s Make A Deal contestant.

Before you have a breakdown or panic attack, we have some good news for you! TaxBandits has the best solution for your last-minute tax filing needs.

Exempt organizations that operate on a fiscal tax year have varying Form 990 due dates based on the organization’s tax year. 

Fiscal Tax Year Filing Deadlines


If your organization is required to handle 990 e-filing soon and you are running out of time, your best bet is to file your appropriate 990 Form with TaxBandits quickly or simply file Form 8868 for an extension of time to file.  

Both forms are due by midnight on deadline day, so let’s make a deal–Form 990 or Extension Form 8868?

Before we reveal the grand prize let’s discuss the difference between both forms to determine the best option for you. It is important to note that it does not matter how the gross receipts achieved this total (if it was via peer-to-peer fundraising, donations, etc.) it only matters what that total is. 

Form 990 Series

There are four variations of Form 990 included in the Form 990 Series. Each form provides information on specific types of exempt organizations:

Form 990

Filed by organizations with gross receipts more than or equal to $200,000 or total assets equal to or greater than $500,000.

Form 990-EZ

The Short Form Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax filed by organizations with gross receipts less than $200,000 and $500,000 in total assets.

Form 990-N

Organizations with gross receipts that are less than or equal to $50,000 file this form electronically.   

Form 990-PF

Filed by Exempt & Taxable Private Foundations as well as Non-Exempt Charitable Trusts which the IRS treat as private foundations.

Extension Form 8868

Used by nonprofit groups, charities, and other tax-exempt organizations for an extension of time to file their federal tax return. By simply filing this form with us by your original Form 990 deadline you will get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file your Form 990 and can avoid IRS penalties.
