I submitted Form 990-EZ via certified mail on March 21, 2018 for FY 2017. I am curious to learn when the document will be available/uploaded to our GuideStar profile. Thank you so much!
Thanks for using GuideStar. I see you have access to update your organization's Nonprofit Profile. You can upload Forms 990 to your Nonprofit Profile. Please use this helpful guide to learn how.

Thank you. In the past, the document was uploaded on the GuideStar side
with a dated stamp from the IRS. Will that not happen this year? My
apologies for my ignorance.

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.
Thank you. This was very helpful and I will do as directed. I am
concerned that the IRS did not receive my 990; do you know how I can
contact them to confirm delivery in the meantime?
Thank you again.
