Form 990-EZ Requirements

To qualify to file Form 990-EZ, a nonprofit must meet the following criteria:

Your exempt organization may file Form 990-EZ if:

  • Your gross income of less than 50,000. You may also use form form 990N or form 990.
  • Your gross income of less than $200,000. You may also file form 990.
  • The organization's total assets at hand must be less than $500,000.
  • That means that if your organization’s assets were more than $500,000 or your gross income was over $200,000, your organization will not qualify to file Form 990-EZ.

Form 990-EZ Due Date

The 990-EZ is due 4.5 months after an organization’s fiscal year end. This due date can be extended an additional 6 months by filing Form 8868 by the original due date of the return. Qualified organizations can either file IRS Form 990-EZ by mail or file electronically, however, per the Taxpayer First Act Law (H.R. 3151) , they will be required to transition to electronic filing only.
