How do I prepare Form 990-EZ instead of Form 990?


When you prepare a return for an exempt organization, the application defaults to preparing Form 990 rather than Form 990-EZ. To override this default and calculate Form 990-EZ, enter X in the Prepare Form 990-EZ field on Screen 990.

Note: The application does not provide unique input screens for Form 990-EZ data entry other than Screen Ques-EZ.
