Filing IRS Form 990-N (e-postcard) on-line
organizations (clubs and districts) with an EIN (employer identification
number) must file an information tax return with the IRS. If gross receipts
(all income to include dues, donations received for scholarships, etc.) are
less than $50,000, you can file form 990 N, Electronic Postcard. That is only
filed on-line. If receipts are more than $50,000, you need to file the 990 EZ. The
e-postcard must be filed no later than the 15th day of the 5th
month following the end of the fiscal year. It must be filed at least every
three years, but it is best to file it every year. Failure to file the 990-N at
least every three years will result in the IRS revoking the tax-exempt status
of the club.
