Time is Winding Up: September 15 Filing Deadline


If you filed an extension within the last several months to e-file your organization’s Form 990, your extended time to file may be quickly approaching. 

Form 990 is the Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax form which many tax exempt organizations such as religious groups, educational groups, charities, and other nonprofit groups are required to file each year to provide the public with financial information about their organization. 

Forms included in the Form 990 Series are Form 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, and 990-N. These forms should be filed each year by a leader within your organization. The standard due date for Form 990 Series to be filed is on the 15th day of the 5th month of your tax year. 

If your organization operates from January 1 - December 31, your deadline will always be May 15. However, if you operate on a fiscal year (12 consecutive months ending on any month besides December), your deadline will depend on the month that your organization ends its fiscal year. 

For example, organizations that operate from November 1 to October 31 have a Form 990 deadline of March 15. By filing an extension form to receive more time to file, the new date for the return would be September 15. Also, organizations that operate from May 1 - April 30 have the same September 15 deadline. 

Whether you are filing with or without an extension, we are here to help make your filing process a smooth one. If your original filing deadline is September 15 and you need some more time to file, take a few moments and file Exempt Organization Tax Extension Form 8868 to receive an additional 6 months to file. 

If you’ve already filed an extension for your organization back in March, utilize the services of ExpressTaxExempt and complete your filing needs before next Friday. 

With ExpressTaxExempt, you can e-file your Form 990 all throughout the year, no matter when your deadline is. Just as you begin your form in the program, they’ll ask you for some organization details, including your tax year to help make sure you’re filing on time. Of course, if you have any questions along the way, you can also get in touch with their all-star support team. Just give them a call or send them a live chat or email and they’ll be happy to help!
