Don’t put your federal tax-exempt status at risk!  Be sure to comply with the following to keep your tax-exempt status through AMIBA intact:  

Submit to the IRS by May 15 each year: 

  • your annual informational 990, 990-EZ, or 990-N postcard to the IRS. See chart below* to determine which you need to complete.

Submit to AMIBA by August 1 each year: 

  • a copy of your annual informational 990, 990-EZ or 990-N postcard. Why not do this when you submit it to the IRS?
  • an income/expenses report for the previous full year to AMIBA. For convenience, consider doing this at the same time you send us your 990.
  • any changes in organizational purpose, character or method of operation; any organizational name or address change
  • any change to your group’s operation that may prevent it from continuing in the group or expressed desire to pursue tax-exempt status on your own (we will delete you from our exempt group). Affiliate subsequently will be subject to individual filing requirements.

Be an affiliate in good standing with AMIBA. 

  *All affiliates included in AMIBA’s group exemption or having received recognition as tax-exempt by the IRS are required to file an IRS Form 990 beginning with fiscal year following the initial ruling period.
