This year, for the first time, Alpha Zeta Chapters must file
the 990 series return with the IRS. Each
chapter should have received a postcard that they are required to send back to
If your chapter did not receive a postcard or you have any
questions, please visit the IRS Exempt Organizations website at www.IRS.gov/EO. You can find information about which
990-series form to file and a set of FAQs.
For individual chapters who are tax-exempt, if you do not
file your required annual information form for three consecutive years, you
will automatically lose your tax-exempt status. An organization that
automatically loses its section 501(c)(3) status can no longer receive
tax-deductable charitable contributions.
If you cannot find the information you need, call the
toll-free number at (877) 829-5500 and ask to speak with Lois G. Lerner,
Director of Exempt Organizations.
