Hey trucking nation, we have an important reminder for nonprofit and tax exempt organizations. If you have a nonprofit like Truckers Against Trafficking or a religious group, educational group, group against harming children or animals, or more then your Form 990 deadline might be today!
The deadline changes based on when your organization’s tax year ends, so we are here to go over the deadline. Also, if you need to file by tonight at midnight, don’t worry, you can complete your Form 990 in a matter of minutes with the help of our sister company, ExpressTaxFilings.
The Form 990 Deadline
First of all, Form 990 is the Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax. You are required to file this form annually in order to maintain your tax exempt status and comply with the IRS.
This form is used by government organizations to make sure that nonprofit organizations aren’t abusing their tax exempt status. It’s also used by the IRS to make nonprofit organization’s financial information available to the public.
The 990 deadline is on the 15th day of the 5th month after your tax year ends, so it can really fall on any month of the year. If your organization has a traditional calendar tax year that ends in December then your Form 990 is on May 15.
If your organization has a fiscal tax year, meaning it runs for 12 consecutive months and ends in any month but December, then your deadline will vary. For, example if your tax year ended in June then your Form 990 deadline is today, on November 15.
Also, back in May if your Form 990 was due, but you used Form 8868 to get an automatic 6-month extension on your form, then your time is up. You need to file by tonight at midnight.
