Combined Federal Campaign Reference Materials

CFC MEMORANDUM 2007-11

November 6, 2007

TO: NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS, LOCAL APPLICANTS, LOCAL FEDERAL COORDINATING COMMITTEES AND PRINCIPAL COMBINED FUND ORGANIZATIONS
FROM: MARK LAMBERT
ACTING DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF THE COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN (OCFC)
SUBJECT: SIGNATURES ON E-IRS FORMS 990

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) applicants which file the IRS Form 990 electronically are no longer required to provide an officer's signature in the body of the form. Beginning with the 2008 campaign, such applicants must provide a complete hard copy of the Form 990 that was transmitted to the Internal Revenue Service, along with IRS Form 8879-EO ("IRS e-file Signature Authorization for an Exempt Organization") or Form 8453-EO ("Exempt Organization Declaration and Signature for Electronic Filing"). Both Form 8879-EO and 8453-EO require an officer's signature and declaration that the information contained in the document is true, correct, and complete.

CFC applications containing an unsigned hard copy Form 990 which is not accompanied by a signed IRS Form 8879-EO or Form 8453-EO will be considered incomplete and may result in the denial of the application. For those organizations that do not file an E-IRS Form 990, we continue to require an officer's signature in the appropriate place on the form filed with the IRS. For more information, please contact the Office of CFC Operations at (202) 606-2564.
