to file at least an informational return with the IRS. The Form 990 is that annual informational return.
The purpose of the IRS Form 990 is to give the IRS, as well as the general public, the ability to evaluate your non-profit's operations. This can include the non-profit organization’s mission, programs, and finances.

Which IRS Form 990 should I file?
There are several different 990 forms including the Form 990-N (e-Postcard), 990-EZ , 990 and 990-PF. The specific 990 form that you are required to file generally depends on your organization’s gross receipts and financial activity, as indicated in the chart below.
Most non-profit organizations are required to apply for recognition of exemption. If you need to apply for tax exempt status, you should file either the Form 1023 or Form 1024. Application Form 1023 is required if you are filing under section 501(c)(3), and Form 1024 is required if you are filing under section 501(a).

The Form 990-EZ is an annual information return required to be filed with the IRS
by many organizations exempt from income tax under section 501(a), and certain political organizations and
nonexempt charitable trusts. If an organization has gross receipts less than $200,000 and total assets at
the end of the year less than $500,000, it can file Form 990-EZ, instead of Form 990.
Gross receipts are the total amounts the organization received from all sources during its annual accounting period, without subtracting any costs or expenses.
Form 990 must be filed by an organization exempt from income tax under section 501(a) (including an
organization that has not applied for recognition of exemption) if it has either the gross receipts
greater than or equal to $200,000 or total assets greater than or equal to $500,000 at the end of the
tax year. Gross receipts are the total amounts the organization received from all sources during its tax
year, without subtracting any costs or expenses.
File Form 990 by the 15th day of the 5th month after the organization's accounting period ends.
Form 990-PF is used to figure the tax based on investment income, and to report charitable distributions
and activities. Form 990-PF serves as a substitute for the section 4947(a)(1) nonexempt charitable trust's income
tax return, Form 1041, U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts, when the trust has no taxable income.
Form 990-PF return must be filed by the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the foundation's accounting period.
