Is there a penalty if I fail to file the 990 e-Postcard?
Yes. The IRS will revoke the tax-exempt status of a state or chapter who fails to meet the annual filing requirement for three consecutive years and possibly Alpha Delta Kappa’s tax-exempt status.
How will my chapter earn a pearl for filing the 990 e-Postcard?
Filing the 990-N e-Postcard is a requirement for the Pearls of Achievement Award.
Because the IRS no longer sends confirmation of e-Postcard acceptance, every May 31, Alpha Delta Kappa will download the IRS 990-N e-Postcard database to obtain all Alpha Delta Kappa filings for the previous fiscal year (June 1-May 31). This information will then be imported into the Pearls of Achievement Award program.
Alpha Delta Kappa no longer requires chapters to send a confirmation to Headquarters for Pearls of Achievement credit.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Your Headquarters' staff is always here to help! You may call 1-800-247-2311 or send us an email at Headquarters@alphadeltakappa.org
