Additional Notices Temporarily Suspended

To help avoid confusion when a filing is still in process, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced in an Exempt Organizations Update newsletter dated March 25, 2022 it temporarily suspended the issuance of several notices generally mailed to tax-exempt or governmental entities in case of a delinquent return. The suspended notices are:

  • CP214, Reminder Notice About Your Form 5500-EZ or 5500-SF Filing Requirement;
  • CP217, Form 940 Not Required — Federal, State, and Local Government Agencies;
  • CP259A, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 990/990EZ/990N;
  • CP259B, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 990PF;
  • CP259D, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 990T;
  • CP259F, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 5227;
  • CP259G, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 1120-POL;
  • CP259H, First Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation Notice – Form 990/990EZ;
  • CP403, First Delinquency Notice — Form 5500 or 5500-SF; and
  • CP406, Second Delinquency Notice – Form 5500

Reporting compensation paid to management companies on Form 990 series annual returns

IRS Announcement 2021-18 revokes Announcement 2001-33 that provided tax-exempt organizations with reasonable cause for purposes of relief from the penalty imposed under § 6652(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Internal Revenue Code if they reported compensation on their annual information returns in the manner described in Announcement 2001-33 instead of in accordance with Form 990 series instructions. Announcement 2001-33 allowed tax-exempt organizations that pay a management company directly for services provided by an officer, director, trustee, or key employee to report the amount paid directly to the management company on their annual tax return instead of reporting the compensation paid to each officer, director, trustee, or key employee who performed the services for the tax-exempt organization. The new Announcement 2021-18 instructs affected tax-exempt organizations to follow the specific instructions to the Form 990, Form 990-EZ, and Form 990-PF, effective for annual information returns required for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2022. Announcement 2021-18 asserts that having all tax-exempt organizations report compensation in accordance with the specific Form 990 series instructions will improve transparency and compliance by making it easier for the public and the IRS to understand financial operations, including compensation arrangements.
