How to create a Tax990 account

There are a few simple steps to create an account with us. 

  1. Go to Tax990’s home page. You’ll see an orange button at the top right corner reading “Sign Up.” Click here.
  2. This will take you to the sign-up page. You’ll enter your email address and contact name, then choose a password.
  3. This is where you will indicate if you are a tax professional or paid preparer. Indicating this will allow you to add your firm’s name and details and manage multiple returns from different organizations at once.
  4. Next, you’ll need to enter the details of the business you’ll be filing for. You’ll have to indicate if you are filing a 990 series form or a Form 8038-CP. Then, enter your EIN, and we’ll pull up the information from our database.
  5. After you enter your EIN and all of your information is saved in our system, you’re ready to get started. You’ll choose which form you are going to file as well as the tax year for which you are filing. Once you select these details, click the orange “Get Started” button.
  6. Now, you have a choice to make. You can decide to file using our interview-based filing method, which will ask a series of questions and auto-populate your form with your answers. Your other option is our form-based method, which requires you to enter your data directly onto a digital version of a 990 form.
  7. Now, you’re ready to get started! Enter your details onto the form. We provide step-by-step instructions that guide you through the filing process. You can also explore for other resources that will help you e-file your return.
