The Best Nonprofit Tax Software Available for Even the Novice Treasurer

Okay, so let’s get the obvious out of the way:

This is going to be about File 990.

But you knew that already.

So, the question at the top of your mind right now is probably “why.”

Why should you choose File 990 above other services—or yourself, for that matter?

What benefits, features, and innovations make File 990 superior to its competitors?

How is File 990 suited to make the filing process simple, quick, and hassle-free for even the most novice of treasurers?

Those are all good questions, and we’re here to answer each one, give you the best information available, and help you accomplish the most important thing to your nonprofit:

Achieving and/or retaining your tax-exempt status.

Although there are several other viable tax-filing alternatives out there, here’s our case for why File 990 is the best nonprofit tax software available for even the novice treasurer.

“Why should you choose File 990 above other alternatives?”

To put it plainly:

We have the most sophisticated and hassle-free software on the market.

Type “File 990” into a search engine, scroll past a few of the page results, and you’ll see a few of our competitors.

Take a look at their general offerings and you’ll see the same things repeated again and again:

  • Authorized e-filer
  • Historical data curation
  • An assisted submission process

And don’t get us wrong, these benefits and perks are nice.

That’s why we offer them.

However, if your service is limited to simply being verified and trusted by the IRS, conducting the service requested (form filing), and offering to compile historical tax records to speed up the submission process, then you won’t be offering anything unique.

At File 990, we understand just how much filing for tax-exemption as a nonprofit (booming or struggling) can be a drain on time and manpower. It’s a headache. And as a result, we also understand that convenience is what really matters to our clients when tax-time approaches.

So, how are we different?

Our software.

But more specifically, our ability to track your organization’s tax status and foster communication (reminders and updates) between your locations.

With File 990, we’ve made our filing process SIMPLE and have built in support features every step of the way to make your filing easier and keep everyone informed across your organization.

Here’s how it works, when you’re ready to file you:

  • Choose your form type.
  • Enter your nonprofit’s EIN.
  • Answer a few questions.
  • Hit submit.

And we’ll take it from there.

Yep, it’s that simple.

File 990 leverages secure, bank-level technology to extract your organization’s historical data from the IRS, track your previous filings, submit the year’s filings, and set up automated reminders to keep each location of your nonprofit in approved tax-exempt status with the IRS.

No more missed deadlines. No more time wasted on refilings.

Did we mention File 990 also helps you keep track of your other location’s tax status?

With our unique software, you’ll also get an advanced dashboard created to help you track the filings of your locations by year and organization, filter them based on their current tax-exemption status, and set up an automatic email to reach out to them when its time to file.


So that you don’t have to.

Rather than spending hours, days, weeks, and months corresponding with the heads of each of your nonprofit’s individual components, your dashboard system will do it for you.
