Form 990-EZ serves as the short form return of organizations exempt from income tax (small tax exempt organizations, nonexempt charitable trusts, and section 527 political organizations). These organizations must have gross receipts less than $200,000 and total assets less than $500,000.
If your organization operates annually from January 1 to December 31 (12 consecutive months), your deadline is on May 15.
If your organization operates on a schedule of 12 consecutive months but ends on the last day of any month except December, your organization would file on the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the organization's tax period.
Note: Tax filing deadlines that fall on a weekend or National Holiday will be due on the following business day.
