Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

2015 Financial data is pending and will be updated as soon as it is available. Tax-exempt organizations can request an automatic 3-month tax extension and an additional 3-month (non-automatic) tax extension if the first 3 months weren’t enough. Note that the IRS requires organizations to demonstrate “reasonable cause” for the additional tax extension.

It is not uncommon for non-profit groups to be busy and understaffed, and getting a tax extension can give them the time to ensure that their tax return is in full compliance.
