For many organizations November 15 is the due date for renewing your charitable solicitation registrations. Most states base their charitable solicitation filing due dates on the charity’s fiscal year. Renewing on-time is pivotal to avoid lapses in your state registration and the late fees and fines that often accompany these.
For organizations with a December year end, most states allow extensions till around the November 15 due date that the IRS sets as the final date for organizations to file their IRS Form 990 once extensions are factored in. This means that about half of your registrations will come due around November 15th.
For charities with a fiscal year ending June 30, November 15 is the initial due date for filing your 990 and the state registration forms in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia. Both the 990 and all of these state filings can be extended. In a few of these states, as long as you file your IRS Form 8868 to extend your IRS filing deadline, you will automatically receive extensions for the state filings. In other states you will need to request an extension from the state.
