Important Announcement Concerning IRS 990-N System Maintenance

As in previous years, the 990-N filing site was taken down by the IRS in late December through early January for system maintenance. Although maintenance was expected to be complete by January 8, as of January 14 the system is not yet operational. We believe the government shutdown may be delaying this process.

Currently, there is no penalty for late filing of the 990-N. Please continue to check the IRS website and file the return as soon as the system becomes available. Next year, please consider filing the return earlier. For an August 31 fiscal year end, the 990-N can be filed as early as September 1.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. For further questions, please contact Joan Cromer (1-800-944-7732 ext. 7017 or jcromer@psea.org) or Maria Weik (1-800-944-7732 ext. 7058 or mweik@psea.org). Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
