Nonprofits can confidently complete IRS Form 990-EZ with Aplos.
Fresno, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
Aplos Software, an authorized IRS e-file provider, unveiled today the 2014 edition of their online tax preparation software for Form 990-EZ. The software walks a nonprofit through the completion of the form, then submits it electronically to the IRS and provides a printed copy for the organization.
IRS Form 990-EZ is the short version of the annual information return Form 990, which is required by the Internal Revenue Service for tax-exempt organizations. The return includes information about the organization’s mission, programs and finances.
“We take the stress out of filing Form 990-EZ by offering helpful guidance and allowing them to complete it at their own pace. Plus, they get confirmation that the IRS has received the return for peace of mind,” said Tim Goetz, CPA and CEO of Aplos Software. “This leaves them to feeling confident that their return is filed correctly and on time.”
Aplos e-File takes the tax-exempt organization through the form step-by-step, provides relevant tips and guidance, ensures that all of the needed information is included, and then submits that return electronically to the IRS. The organization can also choose to print the form and mail it directly to the IRS.
Aplos e-File offers Form 990-EZ for the fiscal year of 2014 for $39.99 per return. Organizations can also prepare past Form 990-EZs for 2013 and 2012 using the software, but they must be mailed to the IRS if they are after the filing deadline. The Form 990-EZ deadline is the 15th day of the fifth month after the close of the organization’s fiscal year. If the nonprofit’s 2014 fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, then their return will be due by May 15, 2015.
To be eligible to file Form 990-EZ, the tax-exempt organization must have gross receipts of less than $200,000 and assets less than $500,000. Aplos also offers free preparation and e-file software of Form 990-N (e-Postcard) for the fiscal year of 2014. This simple online return is eligible for tax-exempt organizations that normally make less than $50,000 in gross receipts.
