We are new NPO founded in 2017. Our 1st Form 990 will not be prepared until summer 2018. Should I enter the financial data into GuideStar using our Quickbooks financial stmts or should we wait until the Form is filed?
If your organization has not filed a 990 yet, you can update the financial information under the Silver section in the meantime. Please click on the following link from our Learn How To section of the Community to assist you with updating the Silver level: How to Achieve the Silver Level of Participation - Update Financial Documents, Fiscal Year, Revenue, Expenses, and Assets & Liabilities
Once your organization files your 990 with the IRS, we will receive the 990 from the IRS, however, you are also able to upload the 990 to your organization's GuideStar profile.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
