Frequently Asked Questions
This Frequently Asked Questions section provided by ETAX990N.COM has been developed by our Tax experts and framed based on the experiences in filing Form 990-N Tax Returns. This document is solely meant for reference purpose with respect to ETAX990-N services only.
1 What is Form 990-N for?
  Form 990-N, also called the Epostcard, is a short electronic notice that most small, tax-exempt organizations (such as 501(c)3s) have to file with the IRS, starting in 2008 for activities from January 1, 2007 onward. Form 990-N is a way of ensuring transparency among small non-profits.
2 Who must file Form 990-N (e-Postcard)?
  Tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts of $50,000* or less must file this form.
3 What information is required to file 990-N?
  The IRS’s e-postcard is short and simple. Here is what you must provide:
You'll also need:
  • Organization’s name
  • One or more other (DBA – doing business as) names used by the organization
  • Organization’s mailing address
  • Organization’s website address (if applicable)
  • Organization’s employer identification number (EIN)
  • Name and address of a principal officer of your organization
  • Organization’s annual tax period
  • Is the exempt organization terminated or going out of business (Yes or No)?
  • Are the exempt organization’s gross receipts normally $25,000 or less (Yes or No)?
4 Why is Form 990-N necessary?
  Before, most small non-profits (grossing less than $25,000 a year) did not have to file anything with the IRS. However, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) changed that. Requiring that you file annually ensures that the IRS and potential donors can access up-to-date information on your organization
5 How do I file Form 990-N?
  The IRS requires that the e-postcard be filed electronically. There is no paper form. You must be able to access the internet, but no software or download is required. If your non-profit does not have a computer, you will be able to fill out Form 990-N using a computer at a public library.
6 When is Form 990-N due?
  Form 990-N must be filed every year; however there is no one due date for filing the e-postcard. Instead, you must file “by the 15th day of the 5th month after" your non-profits’ fiscal year ends. Knights of Columbus fiscal year ends June 30th , file by November 15th.
7 Will I get a confirmation that I filed the e-Postcard?
  Yes. You will receive an e-mail indicating whether or not your e-Postcard was accepted by the IRS.
8 If my information changes or I make a mistake, can I amend the e-Postcard after submission?
  No, you cannot file an amended e-Postcard. You can make corrections or update your information when you file your next e-Postcard in a subsequent year.
9 What happens if I file the e-Postcard late?
  The IRS will send you a reminder notice if you do not file your e-Postcard on time, but you will not be assessed a penalty for late filing an e-Postcard. However, it is critical that you file within the three years after the last missed due date.
10 Can I file an e-Postcard for a prior year?
  Yes, If you have not filed your prior years, You should be able to file through our system up to 3 years in the past. But we cannot guarantee the acceptance from IRS.
11 Do I need an e-mail address to file the e-Postcard?
  Yes, you will need an e-mail address. The system uses the e-mail address to activate your login ID and password and to notify you if your e-Postcard was accepted or rejected by the IRS. If rejected, the e-mail will contain instructions on who to contact to resolve the problem.
12 How can I determine what my exempt organization’s tax year is? 
  A tax year is usually 12 consecutive months. There are two kinds of tax years:
  • Calendar Tax Year: This is a period of 12 consecutive months beginning January 1 and ending December 31; or
  • Fiscal Tax Year: This is a period of 12 consecutive months ending on the last day of any month except December
13 Can I file the e-Postcard before the close of my tax year?
  No, you cannot file the e-Postcard until after the end of your tax year.
14 When my organization attempted to file the e-Postcard, it received an error message indicating that the EIN was incorrect. What should we do?
  If you are certain that your EIN was entered correctly, the IRS may not have your organization listed as a tax-exempt organization. This may be because your application for tax exemption is pending or you did not apply for tax exemption. If this is the case, an officer of the organization should contact Customer Account Services at 1-877-829-5500 (a toll-free number) and ask that the organization be set up to allow filing of the e-Postcard.
15 What should I do if another organization filed an e-Postcard using my organization’s employer identification number?
  If you cannot file your e-Postcard because another organization used your employer identification number (EIN), you must contact IRS Customer Account Services at 1-877-829-5500 (a toll-free number) and explain the situation. In most instances, you will be able to file your e-Postcard using your EIN, and IRS will notify the other organization of its error. This situation sometimes occurs when a subordinate organization inadvertently uses the EIN of a related organization or the parent organization.
16 Can an organization have its tax-exempt status reinstated if it was revoked for failing to file for three consecutive years?
  Yes, but you must apply (or reapply) and pay the appropriate user fee to have your tax-exempt status reinstated if it was revoked because you failed to file for three consecutive years. An exemption application is required even if your organization was not originally required to file an application. Reinstatement of exempt status, if the application is approved, will generally be effective the date the application was filed, although reinstatement may be retroactive to the date of revocation if the organization shows that it had reasonable cause for not filing for three consecutive years. Reinstatement of tax-exempt status may be retroactive to the date of revocation if the organization can show that it had reasonable cause for not filing. To apply for tax-exempt status, use Form 1023, Application for Recognition of Exemption (if you are a section 501(c)(3) organization) or Form 1024, Application for Exemption under Section 501(a) (for other types of tax-exempt organizations).
17 Who should I contact if I’m having trouble with the e-Postcard website?
  If you experience a problem with the e-Postcard filing system, such as a problem logging on to the system, send an email describing the problem to
18 My e-Postcard does not show up at the IRS Form 990-N Search Site. Why?
  Once a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) has been accepted by the IRS, it can take up to 3 weeks it to appear at the IRS Form 990-N Search Page.
19 How much does it cost to file the e-Postcard?
  Filing the e-Postcard is free....
20 What happens if I fail to file the e-Postcard (or Form 990 or Form 990-EZ)?
  An organization that fails to file the required e-Postcard (or annual return) for three consecutive tax years automatically loses its tax-exempt status. The revocation of an organization’s tax-exempt status does not take place until the filing due date of the third year. For example, if your e-Postcard was due on May 15, 2008 (for tax year 2007) and you did not timely file in 2007, 2008 or 2009, you lose your tax-exempt status effective on the 2010 due date.
