When will Form 990’s for 2017 be posted?
Good Afternoon Bryan,
Thank you for contacting GuideStar.
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.
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:
