Reminder: Exempt Organization Extension Filing Due Date Fast ApproachingNovember 2021 Tax News

Exempt Organization Extension Filing Due Date

Exempt organizations that follow a calendar year-end should plan to file Form 199 or FTB 199N by November 15 to avoid late fees and penalties.

Exempt organizations are required to file annual information returns by the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of their taxable year. For a calendar year organization, that date is May 15.

We grant an automatic 6-month extension to file a return if both of the following apply:

  • The organization is not suspended on the original due date.
  • The organization's return is filed on or before the extended due date.

Refer to our Business Due Dates webpage for more information. Our exempt organization call center is available to assist nonprofits with questions concerning exemption, missing returns, or balances due.
