What year should the 990 reflect?

I routinely do research on funders and non profit organizations thru guidestar.  Tonight I was reviewing 990's and realized there is no consistency in the year of the 990 (2016) and the year it reflects (2015) for some organizations.  Others on form 2016 990 reflect the year 2016.  Is it due to different fiscal years?  July-June? for instance?  Please advise.  I am not seeing on the 990 where it asks the question regarding the fiscal year.  But, aren't 990's for a calendar year?  Thanks for your help!  Nancy
