It's IRS 990 Time!

 

May, 2014

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 units' gross receipts and total assets, as defined in the table below.

The videos for forms 990 and 990-EZ are all new this year. When you select to view either the 990 or 990-EZ video, you will find that links to the forms and their associated Schedules, are available from within the video format. The video also contains a menu to move from Page/Part; therefore, the initial menu buttons were removed.

All of the instructions and guidelines posted on the www.mooseintl website are based on the operations of average Moose Lodges, Chapters, and Legions.

  • If your unit has activities that are not addressed in the instructions provided, you should contact your State 990 or Government Relations Chairman.

  • If you have any general questions about filing your return, please contact Member Services at 630.906.3658.

  • Please attempt to prepare the form yourself, as outside help can be quite expensive, and many accountants are not familiar with Fraternal Organizations.

We anticipate quite a few Lodges will be required to file Form 990 this year. This form has undergone significant changes this year. If you have determined you are required to file Form 990, please download the form, schedules and attachments from the IRS web site (www.irs.gov).

If your filing status indicates you can file Form 990N, no forms are required. Please follow the instructions provided for filing this form through the Internet.

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. Certain information has already been inserted to assist you in preparing your return.

All forms must be remitted to the IRS no later than September 15, 2014.

After completing the 990 or the 990EZ, sign and mail it to:

Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service Center
Ogden UT 84201-0027


It is very important that you file a return or an extension by September 15, as the penalties for late filing can be costly.

If you need to request an extension of time to file, please obtain Form 8868 from the IRS. This form can be downloaded from the IRS web site. Do NOT mail the extension until September and you are sure you will need more time to complete the 990.

Again, if you have any general questions about filing your return, please contact Member Services at 630.906.3658.
