One Day Left Before the December 15 Deadline: File Today!

Time is winding up for the December 15 deadline to file Form 990! With Christmas right around the corner and various holiday festivities taking place, we realize how easy it is for tax related matters to be swept under the rug and forgotten about.

That’s why TaxBandits has created a simplified e-filing process that you can complete with ease and maintain tax exempt status with the IRS.

Before you have a panic attack, let’s make sure your organization is required to file a 990 Form by tomorrow’s deadline.

Does My Organization Have to File by Tomorrow?

Although exempt organizations must file with the IRS annually, all organizations are not required to file by tomorrow’s deadline.

The general Form 990 deadline is the 15th day of the 5th month after your tax year ends. Organizations with a calendar tax year which ends in December would file on the standard May 15th deadline.

However, if you have a fiscal tax year, meaning your tax year consists of 12 consecutive months and ends any month besides December, your deadline is in a different month.

Organizations with a tax year beginning on August 1 and ending on July 31 are required to file their 990 return or apply for an extension to file with Form 8868

 by December 15.

Get More Time to File

The great thing about filing with TaxBandits, is that if you need more time to file your Form 990, you can simply file Form 8868 for an automatic 6-month extension!

Form 8868 is used by nonprofit groups, charities, and other tax-exempt organizations to get an extension on their 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.
