Form 990 Can Work in Your Favor

Nonprofits are all too familiar with Form 990. While it has recently been revised and unfortunately greatly expanded, nonprofits who fill out the form as completely as possible may avoid non-compliance or incomplete reporting notices and additional scrutiny from the IRS.

The other benefit of completely filling in Form 990 is that it can serve as a great marketing tool as well. The public today has more access to data on nonprofit groups which in many cases is pulled from Form 990. You can use the power of the form to attract donations and new members who identify with your nonprofit’s mission.
