Organizations exempt from tax under sections 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 of the Internal Revenue Code are supposed to file a Form 990 with the IRS by the 15th day of the fifth month following the end of the organization’s fiscal year. The previous fillings by Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US indicate a fiscal year that is the same as the calendar year. Thus, their filings should normally due on 15 May. Two extensions of three months each are possible, so the final drop dead date for filing is 15 November.
I’ve been on the lookout for the 2011 filings from these “charities,” and they have yet to appear on the usual sites such as Guidestar or Foundation Center—even though their forms should have been filed more than a month ago. Therefore, I’ve submitted Form 4506-As asking the IRS for copies of the filings from both JTMP and VRUS.
It’ll be interesting to see the changes from 2010 to 2011.
