Chapter Treasurer: Did you File Your 990N Yet?

Filing deadline was May 15

May 2016 - In the United States, all tax-exempt organizations are required to file a tax return by May 15 each year. If you missed the deadline, the good news is there is no penalty assessment for filing Form 990-N late.

Be warned, organizations that fail to file required Forms 990, 990-EZ, or 990-N for three consecutive years will automatically lose their tax-exempt status. Revocation of the organization’s tax-exempt status will happen on the filing due date of the third consecutively missed year. Revocation will result in your chapter being considered a taxable entity and any net profit will be taxable.

Most small tax-exempt organizations (like EAA chapters) whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less can satisfy their annual reporting requirement by electronically submitting Form 990-N. To electronically submit Form 990-N, Electronic Notice (e-Postcard) for Tax-Exempt Organizations Not Required to File Form 990 or Form 990EZ, use the Form 990-N Electronic Filing system (e-Postcard).

  • Form 990-N must be completed and filed electronically. There is no paper form.
  • Form 990-N filers may choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.
  • Use the Form 990-N Electronic Filing System (e-Postcard) User Guide while registering and filing.
