The IRS has posted that the host site for the annual filings of the 990-N (e-Postcard) will be changing on February 29, 2016.

How does this affect American Legion Auxiliary Departments, Districts, Counties, Councils and Units? The overall impact should be minor for those organizations filing for the tax years of 2014 or 2015.

The transition requires the following:
Those organizations of the American Legion Auxiliary that have already filed the 990-N online for the current required tax year prior to February 29, 2016 will not be impacted until the next required filing due date. However, when your organization is required to file, please note that the site has changed and it will be necessary to establish a new account on the new IRS repository system for filing.
The IRS will formerly take over the 990-N (e-Postcard) system of filing February 29, 2016. The IRS will not be obtaining or retrieving the already established account data of user id(s) and passwords from the Urban Institute.

American Legion Auxiliary Departments, Districts, Counties, Councils and Units that have NOT filed a 990-N for the current tax year before February 29, 2016 should note that the host site has changed and the account-user ids and passwords, established through the host site of Urban Institute will no longer work with the new IRS repository system for filing. The IRS requires that the eligible organizations required to file the 990-N (e-Postcard) will need to establish a new account – user id and password on or after February 29, 2016.

We ask that you please forward this information on to your units, districts, counties and/or councils.
