Online CPE Mastering Form 990

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CPE Mastering Form 990 Webinar. The IRS Form 990 officially known as Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax is an informational tax form filed annually by tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts of at least $200,000 or assets worth at least $500,000 to be exempted from income tax. This annual reporting is a requirement under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c). Form 990 is intended to provide the government and the public a picture that clearly demonstrates the exempt organization's mission and other significant activities each year, and also to demonstrate transparency and accountability in the nonprofit sector.

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871.  After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded.  Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.

While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world.  But the NRA’s successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and hours of service nearly five million members give to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.
