New Electronic Filing Procedure for IRS Form 990

March 11, 2004

The Internal Revenue Service has designed a new electronic filing process for Form 990 / 990EZ under the IRS e-file program, which began in February. The National Association of State Charity Officials has partnered with the IRS to ensure that state requirements are considered. Currently, 37 states/local governments accept Form 990/990EZ to satisfy their filing or registration requirements.

Form 990 is used by tax-exempt organizations including charities, private foundations, and nonprofit organizations to provide disclosure of releasable data to the public as provided by law. Release I includes Forms 990, 990EZ, 1120 POL , and 8868 . The remaining Form 990 types will be included in a later release.
