Filing Deadline: Don’t Risk Losing Your Exemption

Monday, May 15, 2023 is the deadline for calendar-year exempt organizations to file certain returns. For tips on which forms to file and how to prepare your annual filings, please view the Form 990 Overview Course

As a reminder, under Internal Revenue Code Section 6033(j), organizations that fail to file their Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years automatically lose their exemption.

For more information see IR-2023-90 April 20, 2023

Extension of Time to File

Tax-exempt organizations that need additional time to file beyond the May 15 deadline can request a 6-month automatic extension by filing Form 8868, Application for Extension of Time To File an Exempt Organization Return (PDF). In situations where tax is due, extending the time for filing a return does not extend the time for paying tax. The IRS encourages organizations requesting an extension to electronically file Form 8868.

Nominations for 2024 Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council

The IRS is accepting applications for the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC) through May 31, 2023. Members are appointed to three-year terms beginning in January 2024.
