Exempt Organization Annual Reporting Requirements: Reporting Compensation Based on Fiscal Year Not Permitted

The organization uses a fiscal year as its tax year for completing Form 990. May it report executive compensation in Part VII based on its fiscal year, rather than the calendar year amounts reported on Form W-2 or Form 1099?

No. A fiscal year filing organization must report amounts in Form 990, Part VII, as well as any amounts reported in Schedule J, on the calendar year ending with or within the organization’s fiscal year.  This is the same requirement for organizations filing a Form 990 on a calendar year basis.

TIP: In contrast to the calendar year reporting required in Part VII, an organization filing Form 990 for a fiscal year must report compensation expense amounts in its Statement of Expenses (Part IX of Form 990) based on its fiscal year.
