As the end of the fiscal year approaches, so does the deadline to file your unit’s or association’s 990-N form. You must file through the IRS website.
All NAP units and associations must file an annual tax return to maintain their non-profit status. If your average annual revenue is less than $50,000, you will likely qualify to complete the IRS 990-N, e-Postcard. This is done online by answering a series of questions and submitting the form electronically. You will be filing for the 2016 tax year since the fiscal year began December 1, 2016.
Please see this user filing guide for more information. There are also several more documents available to help you with the filing process:
- 990N ePostcard Filing Instructions
- Filing IRS Form 990 for Associations and Units
- Member Tips on Filing 990-N
- Sample IRS 990-N Filing
If you encounter problems while trying to file, please contact the IRS at 877-829-5500.
Remember: Failure to file this form for three consecutive years will result in the revocation of your non-profit status by the IRS.
