The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced that the filing date for tax-exempt organizations with annual returns due in January and February will be March 30, 2012.
The extension applies to organizations that electronically file Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, or 1120-POL. Form 990-N filers are not affected and no form needs to be filed to get the March 30 extension.
The IRS explained that it moved the filing deadline because the part of the service's modernized e-File system will be offline during January and February.
The IRS has issued Notice 2012-4, which provides more details about the deadline extension.
