Community Benefit

IRS Form 990

The Internal Revenue Service Form 990 is used by 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations to submit information required by the federal government for tax-exemption. The Form 990 is easily accessed by the public and is often reviewed by community members, policy makers, the media, and consumer advocates. The IRS Form 990 presents an opportunity to tell the community benefit story and to document that not-for-profit health care organizations are fulfilling their tax-exempt purpose.
