U.S.-Based Guilds must submit an IRS 990 form by May 15th each year

All U.S.-based guilds that are part of our tax exemption must file a 990 form with the IRS every year! If your guild fails to file for 3 years in a row, the IRS will automatically revoke your non-profit status and you will no longer be a part of our 501(c)(3) group tax exemption.

We use Simple 990 — an online portal used to file the 990-N postcards electronically. The email contact for your guild will receive email reminders from them. Follow the directions in their reminder email. Choose 990-N if your guild’s gross receipts are less than $50,000. It only takes about 5 minutes to do.

If your guild is not receiving Simple 990 emails:

  • Check your spam folder
  • Check to make sure the email on file for your guild is correct by logging into your MQG account and going to “Org Profile” on your Profile page.
  • If the email for your guild is correct and it is not in the spam folder, send us an email at info@themodernquiltguild.com so that we can look into it.

* If you were a new guild for the last calendar year – this does not apply to you yet.
