Time winding down for nonprofits

For nearly 100 nonprofit organizations throughout Washington County, the clock is ticking.
In Tennessee, there are 360 pages of organizations listed as at risk of losing their tax-exempt status because they have failed to submit required returns for 2007, 2008, and 2009, which are necessary under the Pension Protection Act of 2006.
That number includes at least 98 Washington County nonprofit groups, now in danger of losing that tax status unless they take action soon. Dan Boone, spokesman for the IRS, said there are 9,300 groups in Tennessee at risk.
Losing exempt status can “impact their charitable work and their donors’ potential tax deductions,” Boone said. “For most of the organizations, getting back into compliance can be as simple as filling out a 10-minute form online.”
According to the IRS website, the groups can easily keep their status by filing returns by Oct. 15 under a one-time relief program.
Two types of relief are available for small exempt organizations — a filing extension for the smallest groups required to file Form 990-N, Electronic Notice (e-Postcard), and a voluntary compliance program (VCP for small organizations eligible to file (Form 990-EZ, Short Form Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax.
Small organizations required to file Form 990-N need to go the IRS website, supply the eight information items called for on the form, and electronically file it by Oct. 15. That will bring them back into compliance.
For those under the VCP, tax-exempt organization eligible to file Form 990-EZ must file their delinquent annual information returns by Oct. 15 and pay a compliance fee.
Roger Phillips, administrative fire chief for Fall Branch Volunteer Fire Department, said he was shocked to learn that the department was on the list.
“I was not aware of this,” he said.
Phillips said he had seen a list of organizations from the Tennessee Commerce and Insurance, but didn’t spot his organization’s name.
“It was a long list,” he said. “But I went through looking for anything labeled ‘Fall Branch.’”
Turns out, the department was listed at “The Fall Branch Volunteer Fire Department,” and Phillips missed the name.
“Since I had already looked at the list and didn’t see our name, I thought everything was fine,” he said. “That’s how I missed it.”
If an organization loses its exemption, it will have to reapply with the IRS to regain its tax-exempt status. Any income received between the revocation and the renewal of their exempt status may be taxable.
For the Sulphur Springs PTO, the move to file the paperwork is a no-brainer.
“We only became aware of this a couple of weeks ago,” said PTO President Kristen Fuller, adding that she wasn’t notified until after school started.
“We got something in the mail and we’re going to forward that on to the treasurer so we can get this taken care of,” she said.
