Important! All Student Chapters - Annual Tax Filing Requirements

Chi Epsilon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Each chapter MUST therefore electronically submit Form 990-N (e-Postcard) to the IRS every year. If your tax year ends December 31, then you must file the e-Postcard by May 15 of the following year. No penalty is assessed for late filing of the e-Postcard, but an organization that fails to file required e-Postcards for three (3) consecutive years will automatically lose its tax-exempt status by the IRS
