Legion posts: File IRS Form 990

Reminder to all American Legion posts: File IRS Form 990       
Federal tax regulations require every American Legion post to file IRS Form 990. This must be filed by the 15th day of the fifth month after the end of your organization’s accounting period. For example, if your calendar year ends Dec. 31, the form is due May 15.
The American Legion is tax-exempt under Section 501 (c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended. Every post needs to obtain an Employer Identification Number from the government to be listed as a tax-exempt charter of the Legion.
