Answers to Common Questions

Which organizations are eligible to file Form 990-N?
Small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are $50,000 or less for 2010 ($25,000 or less for 2009) are eligible to electronically submit Form 990-N, also known as the e-Postcard. The organization may choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.

When is Form 990-N due?
Form 990-N is due by the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the organization's accounting period. Thus, for a calendar year taxpayer, Form 990-N is due on May 15 of the following year. If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the organization can file the return on the next business day.

Which organizations must file a Form 990 or 990-EZ?
Form 990 must be filed by an organization exempt from income tax under section 501(a) (including an organization that has not applied for recognition of exemption) if it has either (1) gross receipts greater than or equal to $500,000 or (2) total assets greater than or equal to $1,250,000 at the end of the tax year. This includes:

  • Organizations described in section 501 (c)(3) (other than private foundations), and
  • Organizations described in other 501 (c) subsections (other than black lung benefit trusts).

Other exempt organizations can file Form 990-EZ instead. If gross receipts are $50,000 or lower in 2010 ($25,000 for 2009), organizations are eligible to file Form 990-N.

When is Form 990 or 990-EZ due?
Form 990 or 990-EZ is due by the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the tax year. Thus, for a calendar year taxpayer, Form 990 or Form 990-EZ is due on May 15 of the following year.
