June 30th State Charity Registration Deadlines

Did you know that not only do you need to file an extension with the IRS you need to also file for an extension of time to file with the Secretary of State or the Attorney General’s office for your Charity Registration Renewal or Annual Financial forms?

Eight states have due dates that are 6 months after the fiscal year end so for 67% of our customers they should be preparing to send their state renewals or preparing extensions for Kansas, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico and Tennessee.  

Alaska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin are not far behind with due dates beginning September 1st. If you are waiting for your financials to be ready, sign into your account today to print and send in your extension forms if not file your renewal packages today!!

Other states to be aware of are DC, FL, GA, NV, OK, RI, UT and WV which use the organization’s registration anniversary date as the renewal due date which is dependent on your previous registration.  Those dates can be found on your last registration approval letter from the state or the state’s website.


Did you know that 22 states have audit requirements??  Audit requirements begin at 200K for some state registrations and renewals while most average around 500K for an independent audit.  Total revenue is the trigger for most audits while contributions are the basis for other states and about half have some type of exclusion for government agency fees & grants as well as some “other types” of income.  Read the Blog
