Am I responsible for uploading 990s into Guidestar?
Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
We receive 990s directly from the IRS. We take the Form 990 images, convert them to PDF's, and upload them onto our site. It takes approximately two months after an organization files its 990 with the IRS for the 990 to appear on GuideStar. However, if it has been longer than two months and it is not listed on GuideStar, we simply have not yet received it from the IRS. We do encourage nonprofit organizations to post their most recent 990s themselves if we have not yet received the official version from the government.
I'm including a link from our Learn How To section of the Community that includes instructions on how to upload your organization's 990 to the GuideStar profile: Receiving and Uploading Forms 990 to your GuideStar Nonprofit Profile.
Hope this helps.
