Form 990-N is specifically for those tax exempt organizations which have annual gross receipts of less than $50,000. Like all other 990 forms, this form is due on the 15th day of the 5th month after the organizations accounting year is over. This means that if your organization operates on a calendar year basis, your year would start January 1st and end on December 31st so you would need to file by May 15th of the following year. If you operate on the regular fiscal calendar, July 1st to June 30th, your filing deadline would be November 15th. Since this is an annual form, you will only need to file it once a year.
The 990-EZ was created to provide a shorter alternative to filing the Form 990. It is used by tax exempt organizations, non-exempt charitable trusts, and section 527 political organizations to provide the iRS with the information required by section 6033.
To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
Form 1023 is filed by organizations to apply for recognition of exemption from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3). Upon approval, Instant990.org will issue a determination letter that provides written assurance about about the organizations tax exempt status, and its qualification to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. Every organization qualifying for exemption under section 501(c)(3) will also be classified as either a public charity or a private foundation.
