IRS Delays in Processing Paper Filed Form 990EZ Returns

Filed under:


The IRS has announced it is experiencing delays in processing paper returns, including Form 990-EZ Short Form Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax and Form 8868 Application for Extension of Time to File an Exempt Organization Return.

The IRS website notes: “The IRS encourages organizations to file these forms electronically. If you file Form 990-EZ on paper, you may receive a prematurely-issued CP259A notice of non-filing. If you file Form 8868 on paper, there may be a delay in receiving CP211A notice confirming approval of your extension request. If you filed your return or extension request on paper, you do not need to take any further action.  Please don’t file a second return or contact the IRS about the status of your filing. We appreciate your patience.”
