How long does it take GuideStar to get 990 from IRS? We filed our 990 in November 2017 and Guidestar still has not received it.
Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
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. 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 more information on how we received 990s and how to upload your organization's 990 to your GuideStar profile: Receiving and Uploading Forms 990 to your GuideStar Nonprofit Profile.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
