Answers to Common Questions
What should I do if I have all ready filed Form 990, 990-EZ or 990-N?
If you filed within the last four weeks using the same name and Employer ID number (EIN) on your notice, you don’t need to do anything. Our system may not have processed your return at the time we mailed the notice.
If you filed more than four weeks ago or used a different name or EIN, complete the Response form starting on Page 3 and mail it to us with a signed and dated copy of the return.
