'Doomsday' nears for small non-profits

Email News Alerts

May 17, 2010 is being called "doomsday" for many small non-profit organizations in Minnesota.

That's the day they'll lose their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and be ineligible to receive tax-deductible contributions unless they go online and file form 990-N.


The change affects about 4,400 small nonprofits in Minnesota - including 55 in Douglas County.
