Dear Local Unit Presidents and Treasurers,
Great news! Kentucky PTA has a new partnership with File990.org to provide a platform for all local units to e-file their necessary IRS 990 tax forms by November 15. This service is FREE to your local unit and will remind you to file and link you directly to File990.org’s secure IRS approved filing site.
How will this free service work?
File990.org will send you weekly reminder emails until you file your 990 form. THE EMAILS WILL BE SENT FROM FILE990.ORG. When you click on the Complete Tax Form link in the email, you will be directed to a secure File990.org page with much (if not all) of your form pre-populated. The pre-populated information comes directly from the IRS and is based on your unit or council’s EIN.
Can I go to the site to file on my own?
Yes. Go to File990.org and click to get started. You will need to enter your EIN. After this, the form will pre-populate with your unit’s data.
Where do we send the 990 once completed?
File990.org is an IRS approved e-submitter so you can easily submit and file online on their site. You can also print a copy for your records. Send a copy to Kentucky PTA at 148 Consumer Lane, Frankfort, Kentucky, 40601.
How much does file990.org cost?
THERE IS NO COST TO YOUR LOCAL UNIT. This is a free member benefit from Kentucky PTA. You do not need a coupon code, entering your EIN will trigger the free benefit. You do have to click “Proceed to Payment” but no fee will be charged on the next screen.
Can I file 990Ns for previous (missed) years?
Yes, when you enter your EIN, the screen will show you the years that need to be filed for your unit or council. You select the year to be filed and proceed. Then select the next year that needs to be filed and complete the process. You can and should file multiple years in one online session.
Is there a cost to file previous years’ 990s?
No, this is a FREE service provided by Kentucky PTA and File990.org. Other providers charge on average $19.99 for each year filed.
Can I file my unit or council’s 990EZ on the file990.org site?
Yes, you can file the 990EZ through File990.org. Simply email File990.org’s CPA, Cindy Neal, firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your EIN and tell her you want to file your PTA’s 990EZ. She will let you know what information she needs to file your 990EZ.
