Speaking of nonprofit hospitals, the IRS recently announced a delay for hospitals to file their form 990.
In order to complete implementation of changes to IRS forms and systems that are required to reflect additional requirements for charitable hospital hospitals, the IRS is delaying the start of the 2010 filing season for certain tax-exempt organizations that operate one or more hospitals (hospital organizations) required to file Form 990, Schedule H (Hospitals). Hospital organizations may not file 2010 Forms 990 with Schedules H attached before July 1, 2011.
Pursuant to Announcement 2011-20, the IRS has granted an automatic 3-month extension of time to file the Form 990 to hospital organizations with filing due dates before August 15, 2011.
