May 17th deadline looms for non-profits to file returns
May 11, 2010 (San Diego) Congressman Bob Filner (D-San Diego) advises charities in San Diego and Imperial Counties that they could be threatened by a rule requiring organizations to file a yearly return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to keep their non-profit status. Organizations that go three years without filing an annual return will automatically lose tax-exempt status.
East County Magazine found that 1,525 nonprofits in San Diego County are listed as “at risk” of losing their tax-exempt status, including many in East County. The list includes youth sports booster clubs, service clubs, faith-based organizations, groups helping seniors or the disabled, and even such stalwart long-time organizations as a local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter.
