New Filing Requirment for Small Land Trusts!

Advocates Alert: January 22, 2008
Beginning in 2008, small tax-exempt organizations will have a new filing requirement. It’s short, easy and electronic – it’s the new e-Postcard (also called the Form 990-N).

If you are a tax-exempt organization that normally has annual gross receipts of $25,000 or less and thus does not have to file Form 990 or 990-EZ, you now must file the e-Postcard. The e-Postcard is due by the 15th day of the fifth month after the close of your tax year. So if your organization operates on a calendar year, the e-Postcard is due by May 15 of the following year.Nonprofits that do not file risk losing their tax-exempt status.

If you think this new filing requirement may apply to your organization, go to http://www.irs.gov/charities/index.html for complete details.

July 10: House Vote on Conservation Tax Incentive Coming Soon

The House of Representatives will vote on the Conservation Easement Incentive Act, perhaps as early as next week. Whether you use this incentive or not, this is an unprecedented opportunity for the entire House of Representatives to vote specifically on whether or not to help land trusts. Every vote will count, and we urge you to call your congressional office and ask your representative to support H.R. 2807 when it comes to the floor – and to get as many others as possible in your land trust and its local partners to do the same.
