990 Tax returns for Non profit

990 Tax Returns for Non Profit

Making Tax Filing Easier for Non Profits | A2Z Filings

The 501 (C)(3) status for non-profit organizations means that they don’t have to pay taxes annually like others do. However, this does not mean that the tax season is quite that easy for such organizations too. They still need to file the 990 Form to maintain a status of exemption. A2Z Filings is here to assist you throughout the process and deal with the IRS for you. We have some of the best nonprofit document filings experts in Florida waiting to help you with exceptional non-profit filing document services, preparing the 501c3 application process, 501c3 requirements, and much more.

What is the 990 Form?

Form 990 needs to be filled out by all organizations that are exempted from taxes annually if they want to remain compliant with the IRS requirements. It will help show the IRS whether the non-profit is a legitimate organization.

Which Type of Form 990 Should You File?

There are different kinds of 990 forms that depend on the finances of the organization. For any non-profits that have gross receipts of $50,000 or less, you can file the 990 postcard or the 990N. Organizations with gross receipts of $50,000 to $200,000 need to file the 990EZ form while organizations that have gross receipts of more than $200,000 should send in the standard 990 form.

A2Z Filings can help you figure out which form you need and complete the process for you, saving you time, resources, and effort.

When Is the 990 Form Due?

The tax forms for non-profits should be sent in on the 15th day of the 5th month after the fiscal year for the non-profit ends. For those who are operating on the fiscal year calendar, your forms will be due on 15th May unless you file for an extension. We can complete your application in time and even work with the IRS on extensions if you need them.

Reasons Why Filing Form 990 is Important

If you do not file for three consecutive years you will lose your 501 c 3 status

One of the main reasons for filing the 990 form is that it helps show the IRS that you are a reliable and honest non-profit organization. Here are some other reasons why filing for the 990 form is vital:

  • Holds the organization accountable
  • Allows financial transparency
  • Don’t have to deal with penalties like loss of tax exemption status, being unable to accept contributions that are tax-deductible, fees for filing late, and loss of confidence of donors

How to File Taxes for Non-Profits?

There are two main ways to file taxes for non-profit organizations. The first thing you can do is to file the taxes on your own, and the second one is to hire experts who can file them for you.

Filing by Yourself

Preparing the Articles of Incorporation
Preparing the 501c3 Application

Preparing the articles of incorporation

A2Z Filings specializes in preparing the articles of incorporation and managing all relevant documentation.

Filing the articles of incorporation is the first step in the creation of a corporation. If you are struggling with it, we can help you go through the process swiftly and establish your corporation in record time with our nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation document preparation services.

What are the Articles of Incorporation?

Articles of Incorporation are documents that establish the existence of a corporation in the United States. These documents are also referred to as Corporate Charter, Company Constitution, Certificate of Incorporation, and Articles of Association. They are filed with the Secretary of State and outline the governance of the corporation, corporate bylaws, and the corporate statutes in the state where the charter is filed.

A lot of planning goes into preparing the articles of incorporation. These documents contain pertinent information, such as:

  • The name of the corporation
  • The structure and type
  • Information about the registered agent
  • The effective date and duration of operation of the organization
  • Information about the incorporators

Particular rules and regulations may vary depending on the state in which the articles are filed. The state fee for filing Articles of Incorporation for nonprofits vary from $0 to $175. Once approved and established, the Articles of Incorporation become a public record. Individuals and business entities can look it up to learn valuable information about the corporation.

What is an EIN?

An EIN, or Employer Identification Number, is a unique number that is assigned to corporations by the IRS for identification purposes. Just like the Social Security Number, EIN is a 9-digit identifier that is used to identify all for-profit or nonprofit entities in the country. It is your tax-exempt number that you put on the receipt. Once you get your EIN, it is associated with the organization permanently. It never expires, and the same set of numbers is never reissued to another organization, even after the termination of the original organization.

Organizations with EIN are eligible to apply for tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) organization. EIN is also required to file tax returns. Moreover, financial institutions, such as banks, require businesses to provide the EIN and copy of the Articles of Incorporation to open a business bank account. Businesses need the EIN to pay their employees and carry out other financial business activities.

The EIN is also referred to as the Federal Tax Identification Number. If used to identify organizations for tax-related purposes, it is typically known as a Tax Identification Number (TIN).

Preparing the 501c3 Application

Why apply for 501(c)(3) status?

Federal tax law provides tax benefits to nonprofit organizations recognized as exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). It requires that most organizations apply to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for that status.
The 501(c)(3) application process is long and hard, which is why you should leave filling out the 501(c)(3) application to us.

Benefits of having 501(c)(3) status include exemption from federal income tax and eligibility to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. To qualify for these benefits, most organizations must file an application,and be recognized by, the IRS. Another benefit is that some organizations may be exempt from certain employment taxes.
Individual and corporate donors are more likely to support organizations with 501(c)(3) status because their donations can be tax deductible. Recognition of exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC assures foundations and other grant-making institutions that they are issuing grants or sponsorships to permitted beneficiaries.

Exempt Purpose

To be tax exempt, an organization must have one or more exempt purposes, stated in its organizing document. Section 501(c)(3) of the IRC lists the following exempt purposes: charitable, educational, religious, scientific, literary, fostering national or international sports competition, preventing cruelty to children or animals, and testing for public safety.

The most common types of 501(c)(3) organizations are charitable, educational, and religious.


CHARITABLE – organizations conduct activities that promote

  • Relief of the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged,
  • Advancement of religion,
  • Advancement of education or science,
  • Erection or maintenance of public buildings monuments, or works,
  • lessening the burdens of government,
  • lessening neighborhood tensions,
  • eliminating prejudice and discrimination,
  • defending human and civil rights secured by law,
  • combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency,


Educational – organizations include

  • Schools such as a primary or secondary school, a college, or a professional or trade school,
  • Organizations that conduct public discussion groups, forums, panels, lectures, or similar programs,
  • Organizations that present a course of instruction by means of correspondence or through the use of television or radio,
  • Museums, zoos, planetariums, symphony orchestras, or similar organizations,
  • Nonprofit day-care centers,
  • Youth sports organizations,



The term church includes synagogues, temples, mosques, and similar types of organizations. Although the IRC excludes these organizations from the requirement to file an application for exemption, many churches voluntarily file applications for exemption. Such recognition by the IRS assures church leaders, members, and contributors that the church is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC and qualifies for related tax benefits. Other religious organizations that do not carry out the functions of a church, such as mission organizations, speakers’ organizations, nondenominational ministries, ecumenical organizations, or faith-based social agencies, may qualify for exemption. These organizations must apply for exemption from the IRS.


Public Charities and Private Foundations,

Every organization that qualifies for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC is further classified as either a public charity or a private foundation. Under section 508(b) of the IRC, every organization is automatically classified as a private foundation unless it meets one of the exceptions listed in sections 508(c) or 509(a).
For some organizations, the primary distinction between a classification as a public charity or a private foundation is the organization’s source of financial support. Generally, a public charity has a broad base of support while a private foundation has very limited sources of support. This classification is important because different tax rules apply to the operations of each. Deductibility of contributions to a private foundation is more limited than deductibility of contribu­tions to a public charity. In addition, private foundations are subject to excise taxes that are not imposed on public charities. For more informa­tion about the special tax rules that apply to private foundations, see Publication 4221-PF, Compliance Guide for 501(c)(3).
