Filing you club's taxes today on the deadline
« on: May 16, 2016, 01:32:46 PM »
I just wanted to let you know that if you are filing your clubs form 990N today, the deadline for calendar year 2015, you might encounter difficulties.  In particular, if you have never filed form 990N before and have not applied for tax exempt status, the IRS won't allow you to file form 990N.  You have to call the IRS first according to the IRS website.  Don't bother calling today, because the phones are busy today.

Here is the relevant FAQ from the IRS website (https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/annual-electronic-notice-form-990-n-for-small-organizations-faqs-how-to-file).
When my organization attempted to file Form 990-N, we received an error message indicating that the EIN was incorrect.  What should we do?

If you are certain that your EIN was entered correctly, the IRS may not have your organization listed as a tax-exempt organization.  This may be because your application for tax exemption is pending or you did not apply for tax exemption.  If this is the case, an officer of the organization should contact Customer Account Services at 1-877-829-5500 (a toll-free number) and ask that the organization be set up to allow filing of Form 990-N, the e-Postcard.

Your organization will need to allow six weeks for the IRS to update its records before you can file your Form 990-N. Your organization should not be concerned if this delay causes your filing to occur after your Form 990-N is due because there are no late filing or delinquency penalties associated with Form 990-N. Note, however that an organization's tax-exempt status is automatically revoked if it does not satisfy its annual filing requirement for three consecutive years.
