THE PROCESS OF FILING AN IRS 990 FORM IS REQUIRED OF EVERY 4-H CLUB/GROUP THAT HAS AN ACTIVE EIN, REGARDLESS IF THE CLUB/GROUP IS MANAGING ANY MONEY.
August 31st ended the fiscal year for all 4-H clubs and groups in Texas that are under the Texas 4-H, Inc. umbrella. With the end of the fiscal year, comes the requirement for ALL Texas 4-H, Inc. clubs and groups to file their annual information return (Form 990-N, 990 or 990-EZ).
Due to the IRS website being down for maintenance every year in January, our deadline for clubs filing under Texas 4-H Inc. is December 20, 2019. However, you can file NOW! You do not have to wait. Any club or group that does not have a successful filing by that date could potentially be in jeopardy of having their EIN revoked by the IRS. Filing a club or group annual information return is accomplished by each club or group manager and treasurer working with County Extension Agents to complete and file an IRS Form 990.
