What is a Form 990?

While nonprofit organizations do not have to pay federal, state, or local income tax or file a traditional tax return, they must still pay payroll tax, sales tax, and use tax. Most tax-exempt organizations are required to file an annual informational return with the IRS. This annual reporting is done when you file 990 forms for your nonprofit that are due by the fifteenth of the fifth month after the close of your fiscal year.

For example, if your fiscal year ends December 31, you need to file your form 990, 990-EZ, or 990-N by May 15 of the following year. If you are unable to meet the file deadline, you can file form 8868 to get a three-month extension.
