Exempt Organizations Annual Reporting Requirements - Filing Procedures: Incomplete Returns

What happens if my Form 990 is incomplete?

The IRS treats an incomplete return the same as a return filed late - the penalties are the same. For example, if an organization fails to attach a required schedule to its annual return - one of the most common errors in filing Forms 990, 990-EZ, and 990-PF - its return is considered incomplete and filing penalties may apply.
