- The IRS Will Revoke Your Chapter’s Non-Profit Status Unless You File the 990-N e-Postcard!
Dear State and Chapter treasurers*,
(*If you are a treasurer in a province or nation other than the United States, please disregard this message.)
It has come to our attention that the IRS has changed the way in which 990-N e-Postcard filings are done. We believe this will ultimately be a positive for all concerned. We received no notice from the IRS that the process was changing. Here are the changes:
The 990-N e-Postcard is filed on a different website: Go to irs.gov
and search for "990-N e-Postcard" to find the site, or click on https://sa.www4.irs.gov/epostcard/
The IRS will no longer send confirmation of e-Postcard acceptance, therefore, Alpha Delta Kappa will no longer require a confirmation submitted to Headquarters for Pearls of Achievement credit.
Chapters and states still need to file the annual return (990-N e-Postcard) to maintain tax-exempt status. Filing the 990-N e-Postcard is still a requirement for the Pearls of Achievement Award.
Alpha Delta Kappa will, every May 31, download the IRS 990-N e-Postcard database to get all the Alpha Delta Kappa filings for the previous fiscal year (June 1-May 31) and import them into the Pearls of Achievement Award program.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Remember, Headquarters' staff is always here to help! (800) 247-2311.
