What Non-Profits Should Know About Tax Form 990


Form 990 or Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax form is due to be submitted to the IRS by non-profts November 15. Ever since 2008, this Form has been substantially revised to include several reporting requirements by the IRS. There are a few pertinent changes to the form and its requirements that non-proft organizations should know.

Firstly, the IRS wants to know if all members of the governing body of the organization reviewed Form 990. If so, the ‘yes’ box must be marked. This indicates that every member of the governing body has been given a copy of Form 990 either in digital or physical form. The IRS also requires details of who the members of the governing body are, when and how Form 990 was reviewed by them.
