Tax Returns

All organizations (except those classified as churches) in this state are required to file a 990EZ (or more complex) regardless of their minimum annual income. (No 990N is accepted).

The 990 return is due on the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the organization’s fiscal year.

Failure to file for 3 consecutive years could cause your organization lose tax-exempt status.
