Improve the Form 990: Help Us Advise the IRS

The Exempt Organizations Subcommittee of the IRS Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Governmental Entities (ACT) is seeking your input on how the IRS can improve the Form 990. The ACT is a group of representatives of the nonprofit sector and practitioners who provide public input to the IRS on relevant areas of tax administration. 

The Exempt Organizations Subcommittee’s current project focuses on improving and enhancing the effectiveness of the redesigned Form 990, which the nonprofit community has been navigating since the 2008 filing year. We are pleased to provide this opportunity to GMN members and partners to participate in the project and heartily encourage you to complete this brief questionnaire at your earliest opportunity. We would like to ensure that the grants management perspective is well represented. By completing the questionnaire, you will 

  • provide meaningful input for the ACT’s current project on improvements to the Form 990, which will be presented to the IRS Commissioner at a public meeting in June 2015 and published on the IRS website
  • have the opportunity to be sent access to the published report

Your participation in the questionnaire is confidential. Responses will be aggregated and comments will not be attributed to any individual responder. We appreciate your willingness to consider this request and anticipate that it will not take more than 5 to 10 minutes of your time.  Access the Form 990 questionnaire here. The deadline for commenting is February 6.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to help provide your important input to this process.
