Tax-Exempt Organization Burden Survey F990-N, Tax Year 2017

OMB #1545-2212

The Tax-Exempt Organization Burden Survey F990-N is an important project that can benefit you and millions of other tax-exempt organizations.

We are conducting a survey of randomly selected tax-exempt organizations to learn more about the time and money spent by organizations to prepare and submit their Form 990-N (e-postcard).

Responses from tax-exempt organizations will help us estimate the amount of time and money organizations spend preparing their Form 990-N e-postcard each year. We also use this information to learn how to reduce tax-exempt organization compliance burden. All information provided will be used for research purposes only and participation is voluntary.

Only those organizations randomly selected may participate in the study. Data is being collected throughout the year, so you may still be selected even if you have not yet received an invitation. We estimate that it will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete the survey.

This survey is being conducted by Westat on behalf of the IRS. You may view the survey by going to the survey link provided in IRS letter you received.
