The Internal Revenue Service recently reminded many small tax-exempt organizations to file their annual electronic informational return with the IRS by the May 15 deadline. This is the second year of the new requirement for tax-exempt organizations whose gross annual receipts are normally $25,000 or less to file Form 990-N also known as e-Postcards. The process is fast and easy.
The May 15 deadline applies to all small organizations whose tax year ends on Dec. 31. Organizations whose tax year is different from the calendar year must file the e-Postcard by the 15th day of the fifth month after the close of their tax year.
The e-Postcard is a simple, Internet-based form that asks a few identifying questions about the organization. The-Postcard must be filed online; there is not paper option.
More information and a link to the e-Postcard can be found on IRS.gov.
