Individuals and businesses are not the only ones that can receive a tax extension from the IRS. After all, there are other types of organizations that could benefit from filing a tax extension. Non-Profit and Exempt Organizations can also file tax extensions with the IRS by Filing Form 8868. Unlike the process of filing a personal or business tax return, the Form 8868 has 2 separate parts.
The First Part of a Non-Profit Tax Extension is an Automatic 3 Month Extension of Time to File. Unless a Non-Profit Organization files a Form 990-T, the first part will only extend the deadline by 3 months. (990-T extends the deadline for 6 months)
The Second Part of this form is an additional 3 month tax extension. This additional extension can only be filed if the organization has already been granted the first 3 month extension.
The easiest and safest way to file this form is the same as for anything else being sent to the IRS: E-File. The Internal Revenue Service prefers the E-File method and have often referred to it as ”Safer than paper filing”. Some people speculate that it will not be too long before the IRS requires that all documents be processed using E-File.
With ExpressExtension, you can E-File your Form 8868 for Non-Profit or Exempt Organization Tax Extension within minutes. So there is no reason to miss that May 15th deadline.
