Form 990-N e-Postcard

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.
