It's tax time!

This is the annual reminder for all US-based Optimist Clubs in the PNW District to file their 990 tax forms. The forms are due by February 15 every year.

For most Optimist Clubs, the e-Postcard is sufficient. This option is open to all clubs with less than $50,000 income.

The filing should be completed by the president, secretary/treasurer or someone designated by the president. The information needed to complete the form at http://www.epostcard.form990.org follows:
  1. Employer identification number (EIN), also known as a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). 
  2. Tax year 
  3. Legal name and mailing address 
  4. Any other names the organization uses 
  5. Name and address of a principal officer 
  6. Web site address if the organization has one 
  7. Confirmation that the organization’s annual gross receipts are $50,000 or less 
  8. If applicable, a statement that the organization has terminated or is terminating (going out of business)
Should you need any help completing your form, please call 208.861.2310.
