The IRS is penalizing our PTA for not submitting the Schedule A with our 990/990EZ. What do we do? You will need to complete the Schedule A form and mail it back to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), along with an abatement letter. You can find all Schedule A forms for all years by clicking here. You will also need to contact Twenty-Third District PTA for assistance with the abatement letter.
I am unable to file our tax return before the due date. What do I do? If you are unable to file the return on time, you must file for an extension using Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 8868 before the filing deadline. This will allow your PTA six additional months to file your IRS return. This is an automatic extension for both the IRS and the FTB tax filings. If you request the extension, you will not have to pay the late fees as long as you file by the extended deadline. If you are mailing the 8868 on the last day, pay additional charges or shipping fees to track the package so you have proof it was mailed on time.
What are our "gross receipts?" The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) defines gross receipts as “the total amounts the organization received from all sources during its annual accounting period, without subtracting any costs or expenses.” Do not include membership dues that are passed on to council, district or state in this number.
