In most states, simply applying for federal tax-exempt status and maintaining 990 tax filings is insufficient for meeting state nonprofit compliance requirements. Charitable organizations must meet the specific requirements of the state they are registered in to solicit donations and apply for grant funding. Failure to maintain an organization’s 501c3 compliance may result in penalties and fines, and can hurt your nonprofit’s reputation.
We Help You Through Important Dates for 501c3 Compliance
Running a nonprofit at the start-up stage often means staff members wear “many hats.” With so many different roles and responsibilities, it’s easy to lose track of crucial 501c3 compliance deadlines. Our nonprofit compliance checklist features four critical dates that you can add to your calendar.
- Your organization’s fiscal year-end date. This may be December 31, but it can vary based on your organization.
- Dates for creating your budget and securing board approval. Your operating budget and accounts payable and receivable data will be needed to complete your tax forms. In many organizations, your board will also need to approve them.
- Dates for sending year-end tax receipts. Donation receipts must be sent to donors every January.
- Form 990 and 990-N due dates. Depending on the amount of money your organization earns, you may need to complete Form 990 or Form 990-N.
