Frequently Asked Questions About the Delayed Filing Season For Certain Tax-Exempt Hospital Organizations

  1. Does this delay affect my hospital organization?
  2. What if the due date for my hospital organization’s 2010 Form 990 (with Schedule H attached) is before July 1, 2011?
  3. What if the original due date for my hospital organization’s 2010 Form 990 (with Schedule H attached) is August 15, 2011 or later?
  4. How did the IRS choose which hospital organizations should be granted an automatic three-month extension without having to file Form 8868?
  5. My organization did not file a Form 990 with Schedule H attached for tax year 2008 or 2009 but my organization will be attaching a Schedule H to its 2010 Form 990 that is due in May. Will the IRS know my organization should be granted an automatic three-month extension?
  6. My hospital organization is an annual filer of Form 990 with Schedule H attached and the IRS granted my organization a three-month extension. To be safe, may my organization request a three-month extension using Form 8868, Part I?
  7. The IRS granted my hospital organization a three-month extension because my return due date was May 15, 2011. What if my hospital organization still needs more time to file?
