Chapters and states need to file the annual Form 990-N e-Postcard to maintain tax-exempt status
on a federal level. Filing the 990-N e-Postcard is also a requirement for the Pearls of Achievement Program. For most states and chapters, this is due annually by October 15.
What does it mean to maintain tax-exempt status
? Alpha Delta Kappa International has been declared a 501(c)(3), a nonprofit/charitable
organization that has been recognized by the IRS as being tax-exempt by virtue of its charitable
programs. This status as a charity means donations to the international organization are tax-deductible.
All S/P/N’s and chapters are currently 501(c)(7) nonprofit organizations and are exempt from paying federal income tax
, with some exceptions, so long as they file the 990-N e-Postcard. Note: a 501(c)(7) is not considered a charitable organization and is subject to state sales tax.
