Electronic Filing of Nonprofit Tax Returns Signed Into Law
July 09, 2019 / Candid
President Trump has signed the final version of a bill requiring the electronic filing of nonprofit tax returns and the release of those forms to the public free of charge in a searchable, machine-readable format. A provision in H.R. 3151, a bipartisan Internal Revenue Service reform measure that was passed by Congress in June, makes e-filing of Forms 990 by exempt organizations mandatory beginning with the 2020 tax year. A delay in implementation may be granted for small organizations, organizations for which the U.S. Department of Treasury determines that the law would cause an undue burden, and organizations filing Form 990-T.
