Not-for-profit organizations, ranging from professional and trade associations 501(c)6 to charitable organizations 501(c)3, arts and educational organizations and foundations, are facing some of the most dramatic changes in IRS tax reporting requirements on Form 990 – Return for Organizations Exempt From Income Tax.
