Courtesy Reminder: IRS Form 990 Returns
All 501 (c)(3) Crime Stoppers programs are required to file an annual IRS return.
Noncompliance for the first three sequential years may cause the IRS to revoke tax-exemption.
Which Form 990 series your program must file generally depends on its financial activity. For your organization's tax year 2010 and later the following generally dictates which IRS form 990 you must file:
- Gross receipts normally equal to or less than $50,000.00: Form 990-N
- Gross receipts greater than $50,000 and total assets less than $500,000: Form 990-EZ or Form 990
- Gross receipts equal to or greater than $200,000 or total assets equal to or greater than $500,000: Form 990
