What happens if my Form 990 is missing information or a schedule, or is the wrong return?

If an organization’s return is incomplete or the wrong return for the organization, the IRS will send it back with one of the following letters: 

  • Letter 2694C Returning Form 990 due to Missing Information 
  • Letter 2695C Returning Form 990-EZ due to Missing Information 
  • Letter 2696C Missing Information Request to Process EO Return 

Note: The letter number is in the lower right corner.

Be sure to:

  • Follow the instructions to provide the missing or incomplete information. We may not have identified everything. It's your responsibility to file a complete and accurate return
  • Sign your return.
  • Attach a copy of the letter.
  • Include a reasonable cause explanation of why you didn't initially submit all the required information with your return. We may charge you a penalty if you fail to provide both the missing or incomplete information and a reasonable cause explanation.
