IRS Filing Requirement for All Posts/Units 


Annual Electronic Filing Requirement for Small Exempt Organizations -- Form 990-N (e-Postcard) 

Small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are normally $25,000 or less may (will for The American Legion) be required to electronically submit Form 990-N, also known as the e-Postcard , unless they choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ. 

If you do not file your e-Postcard on time, the IRS will send you a reminder notice but you will not be assessed a penalty for late filing the e-Postcard. However, an organization that fails to file required e-Postcards (or information returns - Forms 990 or 990-EZ) for three consecutive years will automatically lose its tax-exempt status. The revocation of the organization's tax-exempt status will not take place until the filing due date of the third year. 


This filing requirement will be mandatory for all American Legion posts and units previously exempted because they did not meet the minimum income level of 25,000 to file a 990 or 990-EZ. 


Due Date of the e-Postcard: 


The e-Postcard is due every year by the 15th day of the 5th month after the close of your tax year.  For example, if your tax year ended on December 31, the e-Postcard is due May 15 of the following year.  You cannot file the e-Postcard until after your tax year ends.

 


Military Discharge Requests

If you are a veteran whose home of record at time of entry into the service was the State of Maine then a copy of your DD-214 (or equivalent) may be on file at the Bureau of Veteran's Services. 

Please click on the Application Request for Military Discharge link below if you are requesting a discharge from the State of Maine and mail application to the Bureau of Veteran's Services for processing.  For more information, please visit
www.maine.gov/dvem/bvs/military_discharges.htm 

Application Request for Military Discharge

or 

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214s online: http://vetrecs.archives.gov

This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files.

M
ilitary veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. 

Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the Standard form 180, which can be downloaded from the online web site.  Because the requester will be asked to supply all information essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has to ask veterans for additional information will be minimized.  The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records centers mailroom and processing time. 


Please pass this information on to former military personnel you may know and their dependents.
