The IRS announced that beginning February 29, 2016, Form 990-N electronic submissions will be accepted through the IRS.gov website—instead via the Urban Institute’s website
Form 990-N, Electronic Notice (e-Postcard) for Tax-Exempt Organizations Not Required to File Form 990 or Form 990EZ, is used by small tax-exempt organizations for annual reporting and can only be submitted electronically.
As explained in an IRS Exempt Organizations Update (dated February 2, 2016), the Urban Institute will continue to host Form 990-N filing until February 28, 2016. If an organization files its tax year 2015 Form 990-N on or before February 28, 2016, the entity will not be required to register for the new Form 990 submission process at IRS.gov until it files a tax year 2016 Form 990-N in 2017.
The IRS will begin hosting Form 990-N filing on February 29, 2016. All Form 990-N users (including users previously registered with on the Urban Institute website) that file after February 28, 2016, will be required to complete a short, one-time registration before submitting their Form 990-N to IRS.gov.
