How to Get a 990-EZ Fillable PDF
If you are responsible for tax returns in your nonprofit or tax-exempt organization, you need to deal with the non-profit tax form 990-EZ. This form is to be filed once a year, and, unlike other forms, it can be made public. Given that it doesn’t necessarily remain between your organization and the IRS, it deserves more attention than similar forms for commercial organizations or self-employed individuals.

Who can file 990-EZ?
This form is meant for nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations whose gross receipt during the year is between $50,000 and $200,000, and total assets are less than $500,000. If the receipt goes beyond 990 EZ requirements, the organization needs 990-N (if below) or 990 (if above).

Yes, you can. PDFliner has all the necessary tools to fill out, sign, and file Form 990-EZ online, as well as all the necessary schedules.
What happens if I don't file my 990-EZ?
If your organization fails to file its 990-EZ (or another sort of 990, if the gross receipt of your organization varies) for three years in a row, it will lose its tax-exempt status. Don’t forget that for many nonprofits their 990-EZ is the only source of information for the public as well as for the IRS.
