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 17: The House just voted 277-130 to pass the charities package! 56 Democrats joined their Republican colleagues to support charitable giving incentives, including the enhanced easement incentive - the second-highest number of defections after the research and development tax credit. Several others spoke on the floor in support of the conservation easement incentive, and other favorable charitable incentives. Thank you to organizations like Ducks Unlimited, CSF and others that reached out to Congressional offices over the last few days or alerted their membership of this important vote. Now, we pivot to the Senate.
