Designed to streamline the compliance process, Tax990 offers a straightforward approach to filing Form 990, ensuring timely and accurate submissions to the Internal Revenue Service.

The deadline for filing these returns is based on the organization's tax period. Therefore, organizations that meet these criteria are required to file their 990 returns by February 15, 2024.

  • The organization operates on a tax year beginning on October 1, 2022, and ending on September 30, 2023.
  • The organization filed an IRS tax extension Form 8868 to extend a 990 deadline on August 15, 2023.

Tax990 recognizes the challenges organizations face and aims to simplify the filing process, allowing them to e-file quickly and easily, so they can get back to their highest priority - their organization's mission.

Forms Supported by Tax990:

Tax990 supports the e-filing of the following returns in the 990 Series:

  • Form 990-N (e-postcard): For nonprofits with annual gross receipts of $50,000 or less.
  • Form 990-EZ: A shorter form suitable for organizations with gross receipts under $200,000 and total assets under $500,000.
  • Form 990: The standard 'long form' required for organizations with annual gross receipts greater than or equal to $200,000 or total assets greater than or equal to $500,000.
  • Form 990-PF: Tailored for private foundations, mandatory for all regardless of gross receipts or assets.
  • CA Form 199: Mandatory for organizations operating in California.
  • Form 8038-CP: is used by issuers of tax-exempt private activity bonds to request a credit or refund of an overpaid arbitrage rebate. The IRS recently mandated the e-filing of this form.

Impacts of the Current IRS Maintenance Shutdown:

The IRS system is currently shut down for maintenance, meaning that they are currently not accepting the e-filing of the following forms. The IRS recommends that organizations with an 1120-POL deadline or a 990-T deadline file a paper Form 8868 to request an extension of up to 6 months. Additionally, 990-T filers with an extended deadline during this period can wait until the e-file system resumes as long as they provide a reasonable cause when e-filing later.

  • Form 990-T: Required for organizations generating $1,000 or more in unrelated business income (UBI).
  • Form 8868: The Application for Extension of Time To File an Exempt Organization Return, serves the purpose of providing tax-exempt organizations with an extension for filing their annual information returns.
  • Form 1120-POL: This return is used by political organizations to report their income, deductions, gains, losses, and other essential financial details to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

When asked about the upcoming deadline, Agie Sundaram, the CEO and Co-founder of SPAN Enterprises (parent company of Tax990), responded by stating, "At Tax990, we take pride in providing organizations with an effortless solution to navigate the imminent February 990 deadline, guaranteeing a stress-free process to meet IRS obligations.
