Each club needs to read the following very carefully and make sure your club has sent their form in to IRS.
Please see explanation below to which one you need to send in.

Filing IRS Form 990-N (e-postcard) on-line


All 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.
