IRS E-Postcard (Form 990-N)
Chapters are required to visit the IRS website to submit this online only report no later than the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the chapter's fiscal year. (Example: chapter fiscal year ends May 31; 990-N is due by October 15.) See filing deadlines here or in the online reporting system. Please note that the IRS fiscal year information may differ from your chapter's bylaws. You must use the IRS deadline for filing.
This report is part of the Chapter Excellence award.
Failure to file a 990-N for three consecutive years will result in a chapter losing its tax exempt status. This means your chapter will have to collect taxes on initiation fees and other money earned by the chapter!
The IRS has changed vendors for the 990-N. If your chapter needs to setup a new account, information is available in the IRS User Guide.
