If you have filed a Form 990 or Form 990-EZ before, you know that there are “Schedules” that are attached to your return which provides necessary additional information regarding your organization.
There are a total of 24 Schedules between Form 990 & 990-EZ; today we will focus on the most commonly filed Schedule A and its new developments with TaxBandits. Here are some new features that every 990 filer should know about.
New Features That Every 990 Filer Should Know About
What is Schedule A?
Before we get to the “good stuff,” let’s do a quick overview of what Schedule A is and how it relates to nonprofit organizations.
Schedule A is used by tax-exempt organizations or any organization that files Form 990/990-EZ to provide information about its public charity status and public support by the 990 filing deadline. This Schedule allows your organization to explain its program services and give its mission statement or other descriptions of its charitable goals.
Essentially, any non-profit that is supported by the public and operates on a calendar tax year (January-December) must file this Schedule along with their Form 990.
This is due on the upcoming May 15th 990 filing deadline.
TaxBandits makes the e-filing process easier for all of our clients by automatically generating Schedule A once you provide answers to prompted questions when preparing your Form with our software.
Well, we have talked about it enough, so let’s dive into the world of Schedule A.
