IRS Delays Filing Season for Certain Tax-Exempt Hospitals
IRS Announcement 2011-20 grants certain tax-exempt organizations a three-month extension for filing Form 990. The extension applies only to organizations that operate one or more hospital facilities and are required to file Schedule H with the 2010 Form 990.
These hospitals would otherwise be required to file the 2010 Form 990 before August 15, 2011. The hospitals now have an automatic three-month extension, and the announcement also directs these hospital organizations not to file the 2010 Form 990 before July 1, 2011. The delay allows the IRS to complete changes to IRS forms and systems that are required by Section 9007 of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
