What is the time period and lag for available financial or IRS Form 990 information?

Discussion created by Employee on Mar 22, 2016

Information provided by the nonprofit is more quickly uploaded to their profile than information provided by the IRS. Nonprofits are able to upload their most current Form 990 and financials to their GuideStar profile as they complete their IRS filing and these documents become publicly accessible. The official 990 documents we receive from the IRS generally lag four to six months behind the filing date (barring any requests for extensions).
