BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - As many as 4,500 small nonprofit organizations in Alabama have failed to file tax returns the past three years, and officials say they may be in danger of losing their tax-exempt status.
In July, the Internal Revenue Service announced a relief program, allowing them extra time to file the required annual 990 N tax forms.
IRS spokesman Dan Boone says the deadline to file is Oct. 15.
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 mandated that all tax-exempt organizations other than churches must file an annual return with the IRS.
Boone says the form has about eight questions and takes about 10
minutes to file online..
