The IRS requires every tax-exempt nonprofits and private foundations to file 990 forms each year to report revenue, expenses, and other information regarding the organization's activities as well as to calculate any taxable income if applicable. The 990 form series also serves as sources of information about exempt organizations to the public.
Filing a 990 using paper forms is the most traditional way of sending tax information to the IRS. However, paper filing proves to take a considerable amount of time with preparing the required documents for revenue, expenses, and other financial statements, finding and completing the necessary schedules, and mailing the 990 form to the IRS, which requires extra time without a single confirmation from the federal government.
More tax professionals and organizations are choosing e-filing, or electronic filing, as the most preferred method for filing 990 forms with the IRS. E-filing allows the IRS to process 990 tax returns more quickly than paper filing, and it requires less time to prepare along with substantially reducing the number of common filing errors. Submitting tax information is much more secure when using an IRS-authorized, e-file provider than with postal mailing, and the IRS also recommends e-filing as the best method.
