Non-Profits - Pay Attention - You could lose your tax exempt status on October 15

Calling all non-profits - Act NOW or lose your tax exempt status.  

The bad news - any non-profit that has not filed its income tax return Form 990-N by October 15, 2010 will lose its tax exempt status and need to reapply.

The good news - you still have time to fix the problem.  You can file the Form 990-N electronically for tax years 2007, 2008 and 2009 on or before October 15, 2010 and keep your tax exempt status.  You must file for all 3 years if you have been in existence that long and this offer expires on the 15th.

Our colleagues at Sax Macy Fromm & Co., CPA's have sent around a newsletter describing the issue for non-profits.  

The scariest part - over 9000 New Jersey non-profits are at risk.  Click here to see if you are on the list.
