Is Your Nonprofit Prepared the Way it Should Be?

If you’re like me, at some point in life you thought taxes were only filed one time during the year (April 15). However, that’s not the case for many nonprofit organizations.

For example, exempt organizations must file their Form 990 series tax return by the 15th day of the 5th month after the close of its tax year. More specifically, organizations that have a fiscal year which ended on June 30, 2017 have an upcoming filing deadline on November 15.

Failure to file an annual information return for three consecutive years can result in major penalties such as an automatic loss of tax-exempt status and expensive late filing fees.

Note: Churches and certain church-related organizations are not required to file annually.

Filing Requirements

Filing requirements for exempt organizations are as follows:

  • Exempt Organizations with annual gross receipts less than $200,000 & total assets of less than $500,000 file Form 990-EZ.
  • Exempt organizations with annual gross receipts of $200,000 or more and total assets of $500,000 or more file Form 990.
  • Organizations that are classified as private foundations file Form 990-PF.
  • Section 527 (political) organizations that are required to file annually should file either Form 990 or Form 990-EZ.
  • Small exempt organizations that have annual receipts of $50,000 or less are required to e-file Form 990-N (e-Postcard).
