What is a renewal?
Renewing a registration means updating the
information on file with our office after the organization’s fiscal year has
concluded. This is done once each year, and is due at the same time that
the Form 990 is due to the IRS, which for most organizations is the 15th day of
the fifth month after the organization’s fiscal year has concluded.
Beginning January 1, 2013, charitable
organizations will receive an automatic 3-month extension of this deadline. Please
note, however, that even though the e-file system will enter an automatic three-month
extension, charities by law must still file a renewal and financial report with our office by the 15th day of the fifth month after the
organization’s fiscal year, unless the IRS authorizes a later date for
filing the organization’s Form 990. We may request documentation of the IRS authorization.
See the table below to calculate your due date and extended deadline.
A renewal automatically advances the
reporting period one year and must include a financial report. If financial information for the most recent
fiscal year is not available by the renewal or extended deadlines, the organization must
file for an additional extension of the deadline to remain in "Good" status and
avoid late fees.
Is there a fee to renew?
Yes. See the fee schedule for current fees.
