Exempt Organization Annual Reporting Requirements: Compensated Persons Must Be Listed in Order on Form 990 Part VII-A

Form 990, Part VII, Section A instructions say to list persons in a particular order, beginning with trustees or directors, followed by officers, then key employees, then highest compensated employees, then former such persons. Why should these persons be listed in this order?

If a person is a director, trustee or officer of the organization, he or she cannot be listed as a key employee of that organization in Part VII of Form 990. Accordingly, officers, directors or trustees should be listed in Part VII before the organization determines which key employees to list. Likewise, in determining its five highest compensated employees who received more than $100,000 of reportable compensation, the organization is not to consider persons who are already listed in Part VII as officers, directors, trustees or key employees of the organization.
