Dear Administrators, Recorders and Secretaries,
All Moose Lodges, Chapters, Legions, Associations, and any other unit that has a unique EIN are required to file an annual information return, known as IRS Form 990, Form 990EZ, or Form 990N.
The form you choose to file depends on your unit’s gross receipts and total assets, as defined in the table below.
All of the instructions and guidelines posted on the www.mooseintl website are based on the operations of average Moose Lodges, Chapters, and Legions.
We anticipate quite a few Lodges will be required to file Form 990 this year. If you have determined you are required to file Form 990, please use the form, schedules and attachments posted on our website and also available at www.irs.gov.
If your filing status indicates you are required to file Form 990EZ, please use the online forms and worksheets, posted on our website and also available at www.irs.gov.
After completing Form 990 or Form 990EZ, it must be signed by the Lodge Administrator, Chapter Recorder or Moose Legion Secretary and then presented to the board. After the board has had an opportunity to view the return, it must be mailed to:
Department of the Treasury
