Fresno, CA - April 15, 2014 - Aplos Software, a company specializing in online nonprofit software, announced today that IRS Form 990-EZ for the 2013 fiscal year is now available for nonprofits to prepare and submit using Aplos e-File, a tax preparation and e-filing software. The online software is available on their website, www.aplos.com.
Form 990-EZ is a short version of the annual informational return that is required by the Internal Revenue Service for tax-exempt organizations. This form includes information about the organization's mission, programs and finances. Deadline for submitting Form 990-EZ is on the 15th of the fifth month after the close of the organization's fiscal year. For nonprofits with a fiscal year that ended December 31, their return will be due by May 15, 2014.
Aplos e-file guides tax-exempt organizations through the form step-by-step, provides relevant advice, and guarantees all needed information is included. As an authorized IRS e-file provider, Aplos Software will submit returns electronically to the IRS then provide a copy of the return and any schedules for the organization's records. Price per return for Aplos e-file is $39.99.
"The return can be confusing and overwhelming for non-accountants, so it isn't uncommon that someone hits a road block that prevents them from filing," said Tim Goetz, CPA and co-founder of Aplos Software. "Aplos e-File tackles the common road blocks, walks them through it by making it simple, and relieves the stress of filing."
To be eligible to file Form 990-EZ, the tax-exempt organization must have gross receipts of less than $200,000 and assets less than $500,000. Aplos Software also offers preparation software and e-filing of Form 990-N (e-Postcard) for the fiscal years of 2013, 2012 and 2011. This simple, online return is required for tax-exempt organizations that normally make less than $50,000 in gross receipts.
Organizations that do not need to file the IRS form include organizations that are included in a group return; churches and their auxiliaries, conventions or associations; and organizations that are required to file a different return.
