The Easiest Way to E-file Form 990 Tax Returns

With the upcoming November 15 filing deadline for Form 990-N (e-Postcard), many tax exempt organizations whose tax year ended on June 30 will be completing the e-filing process throughout the next few days.

Most small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less can satisfy their annual reporting requirement by electronically submitting Form 990-N if they choose not to file Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.

Filing Form 990-N with ExpressTaxFilings is very easy and can be done within minutes. Although our filing process is quite simplistic, we do realize that it is possible to make a mistake while filing.

Here’s some insight on ways to avoid errors and error messages when filing Form 990-N:

How To File

Search Organization’s EIN – Enter your Employer Identification Number (EIN) to view filing history and e-file your Form 990-N to the IRS.

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.

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.

And just like that, your form is filed with the IRS and your organization remains tax exempt. 

When To File

The date in which your organization must file is based on its tax year. Organizations that operate on a calendar tax year must file by May 15. Deadlines for fiscal tax year organizations vary. If your organization operates from July 1 – June 30, you must file Form 990-N by next Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
