IRS Form 990
All nonprofit organizations that raise any amount of money must file an IRS 990-series return. There is no longer an exception for small organizations that raise under a specific dollar limit. Therefore, each PBUSA member organization must file it's own 990-series return.
PBUSA membership at any full-service level includes filing of the IRS Form 990N (e-postcard). An additional, discounted fee applies for assisted filing of the 990EZ or Full 990.
Pricing shown is for full-service members.

WE KEEP TRACK FOR YOU
Your 990 is due the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of your fiscal year (e.g., May 15th if your fiscal year ends December 31). We'll send you a reminder when it's time to file.
Your organization sets its own fiscal year. PBUSA submits the the year-end date listed in your membership application to the IRS. However, the IRS may make errors when recording fiscal year ends in its database. To correct or change your organization’s fiscal year end see the instructions, Changing Your Fiscal Year End with the IRS.
DEADLINES AND PENALTIES
If you can’t meet the deadline and need an extension, download and file the IRS 990 Extension (Form 8868) PDF. Please note that you cannot get an extension to file IRS Form 990-N.
Failure to timely file 990 returns for three (3) consecutive years may result in loss of your organization's 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
If you receive a notice from the IRS that your organization’s tax-exempt status has been revoked, you cannot file a 990-series until your exemption is reinstated. See What if your organization is revoked?
