IRS has issued an update on processing Exempt Organizations filing Form 990 series

IRS has sent a recent update on processing Exempt Organizations Tax return filed in Form 990 series…

Form 990 processing changes

As of January 8, the IRS is returning Form 990 series returns filed on paper – and rejecting electronically filed returns – when they are incomplete or the wrong return. IRS.gov answers the question What happens if my Form 990 is missing information or a schedule, or is the wrong return?

Form 990-EZ reminders

Tax-exempt organizations with annual gross receipts under $200,000 and assets under $500,000 (at the end of the reporting period) can use Form 990-EZ, Short Form Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax, to meet their annual filing requirement. This means you’ll submit less information and fewer schedules than the “full” Form 990, Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax.

Form 990-EZ includes “assistive” features designed to make filing easier, quicker, and more accurate. These 29 “help buttons” don’t replace the instructions, but they do alert the filer to traditionally troublesome areas and have decreased the error rate for paper-filed returns.

The IRS encourages exempt organizations to file electronically, noting the error rate for electronically-filed returns was only 1% for 2017. A list of companies providing this service is on IRS.gov.

Form 990-series returns are due on the 15th day of the fifth month after an organization’s tax year ends. For organizations using the calendar year as their tax year, May 15 is the deadline to file for 2017. If you need an extension of time to file, use Form 8868, Application of Extension of Time to File an Exempt Organization Return.

Can’t File By April 17? Use ExtensionTax.com to E-File to Get a Six-Month Extension

Can’t File By April 17? Use ExtensionTax.com to E-File to Get a Six-Month Extension

The Internal Revenue Service today reminded taxpayers that quick and easy solutions are available if they can’t file their returns or pay their taxes on time, and they can even request relief online.

The IRS says don’t panic. Tax-filing extensions are available to taxpayers who need more time to finish their returns. Remember, this is an extension of time to file; not an extension of time to pay. However, taxpayers who are having trouble paying what they owe usually qualify for payment plans and other relief.

Either way, taxpayers will avoid stiff penalties if they file either a regular income tax return or a request for a tax-filing extension by this year’s April 17 deadline. Taxpayers should file, even if they can’t pay the full amount due.

Here are further details on the options available.

More Time To File


People who haven’t finished filling out their return can get an automatic six-month extension. The fastest and easiest way to get the extra time is through E-filing. In a matter of minutes, anyone can use this service to electronically request an automatic tax-filing extension on Form 4868.

Filing this form gives taxpayers until Oct. 15 to file a return. To get the extension, taxpayers must estimate their tax liability on this form and should also pay any amount due.

By properly filing this form, a taxpayer will avoid the late-filing penalty, normally five percent per month based on the unpaid balance, that applies to returns filed after the deadline. In addition, any payment made with an extension request will reduce or eliminate interest and late-payment penalties that apply to payments made after April 17. The current interest rate  three percent per year, compounded daily, and the late-payment penalty is normally 0.5 percent per month.
IRS reports, Of the 10.5 million extension forms received by the IRS last year, about 4 million were filed electronically.

Some taxpayers get more time to file without having to ask for it. These include:

• Taxpayers abroad. U.S. citizens and resident aliens who live and work abroad, as well as members of the military on duty outside the U.S., have until June 15 to file. Tax payments are still due April 17.

• Members of the military and others serving in Iraq, Afghanistan or other combat zone localities. Typically, taxpayers can wait until at least 180 days after they leave the combat zone to file returns and pay any taxes due.

• People affected by certain tornadoes, severe storms, floods and other recent natural disasters. Currently, parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia are covered by federal disaster declarations, and affected individuals and businesses in these areas have until May 31 to file and pay.

Easy Ways to E-Pay

Taxpayers with a balance due IRS now have several quick and easy ways to electronically pay what they owe. They include:

• Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). This free service gives taxpayers a safe and convenient way to pay individual and business taxes by phone or online.

• Electronic funds withdrawal. E-file and e-pay in a single step.

• Taxpayers who choose to pay by check or money order should make the payment out to the “United States Treasury.” Write “2011 Form 1040,” name, address, daytime phone number and Social Security number on the front of the check or money order. To help insure that the payment is credited promptly, also enclose a Form 1040-V payment voucher.

Tax Deadline Extended To April 17 2012.

The deadline to file personal tax returns with the IRS for the 2012 Tax Season has been extended to Tuesday, April 17, 2012. The traditional deadline of April 15 falls on a Sunday this year. Since April 15th falls on a weekend, the official deadline had to be changed. It could not be the following Monday (April 16) either due to the fact that April 16th is Emancipation Day. Emancipation Day is considered to be a holiday for the District of Columbia, and Federal Law declares that agencies such as the IRS must observe such holidays of the District of Columbia.

This will be the second year in a row in which the deadline for most tax returns will not be on the traditional deadline of April 15. Tax returns were also later last year due to the Emancipation Day holiday.The same deadline applies to anyone filing a Personal Tax Extension as well as a normal tax return. If a Tax Extension is applied for, this does notpostpone the tax payment. It only extends the time in which to file the tax return itself with the IRS.

Any taxes due must still be paid by April 17 deadline, but with a tax extension, the completed return does not need to be filed until October 15. This 6 month extensionallows tax preparers and others to get the most out of any credits and refunds.One of the easiest ways to apply for a tax extension is through www.Extensiontax.com The Fast and Easy-To-use System makes tax extensions simple and easy.  The entire process takes only a few minutes to complete.
