The VFW New Haven Post 12150 is a tax-exempt IRS 501(c)(19) veterans service organization with gross receipts $50,000 or less. Like thousands of other VFW and American Legion Posts, we are required to file Form 990-N every year. If we don’t file a required return or notice for three consecutive years, our exempt status will be automatically revoked.
So, reading from the IRS directions:
- Go to irs.gov/charities.
- Type 990-N in the search box
- Click on the link for the Form 990-N
It takes less than 10 minutes. Losing exempt status would take hours and hundreds of dollars to fix–so this simple task is very important.
