IRS deadline approaching for small, non-profit organizations
Deadline includes sports clubs, civic organizations and local associations
APPLETON, Wis. - March 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Even small non-profit organizations, such as sports clubs, civic organizations and local associations, are required to file a yearly report with the IRS. By law, the IRS will automatically revoke the federal tax-exempt status of organizations that fail to file annual reports for three consecutive years. Churches and church-related organizations are not required to file annual reports unless they have unrelated business taxable income.
Form 990-series information returns and notices are due on the 15th day of the fifth month after an organization's fiscal year ends. Many organizations use the calendar year as their tax year, making Wednesday, May 15, 2019, the deadline for them to file for 2018. The IRS offers an online search tool called Exempt Organizations Select Check, which helps users more easily find key information about the federal tax status and filings of certain tax-exempt organizations, including whether an organization has had its federal tax exemption automatically revoked.
