I see 990s in 2015 and earlier with complete information, but the 2016 says "provided by Charity" and doesn't list compensation for all top wage earners. Does the information get updated automatically at some point?
Good Morning Deb,
Posting Form 990 images is an ongoing process. 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.
After converting the Form 990 images to PDFs, we send them to an offsite facility, where the data is digitized. This automatically updates the Income and Assets fields and other financial information that appears on the Financials section of an organization’s Nonprofit Profile. It takes about 2 months, from the time we send out the PDFs, to have the digitization process completed. In total, it takes 5 months from filing the Form 990 with the IRS to seeing the digitized information on our site.
To request a copy of an organization's Form 990. You can go to the IRS website at www.irs.gov and locate form number 4506-A. Fax the completed Form 4506-A to the IRS at 801-620-7896 or mail it to:

Thanks so much Robin! At that time does the return that is “provided by the charity” get replaced?
Really appreciate your help!
All the best,

You are very welcome, happy to help.
Once we receive the 2016 990 from the IRS, it will show both the 990 provided by the charity and the 990 from the IRS. The one we will receive from the IRS will just show the year.
Hope this helps.
