What is a pro forma IRS Form 990?

Organizations that are not required to file IRS Form 990 with the IRS or that file some other form—such as the IRS Forms 990-EZ, 990-N, or 990-PF—must submit a pro forma IRS Form 990. This includes subordinates to group exemptions and bonafide chapters or affiliates, which are required to submit pro forma IRS Forms 990 specific to the entity and service location named in the CFC application.

The pro forma IRS Form 990 is not a separate form. Rather it is a partially completed IRS Form 990 that is used for CFC purposes only. The following items must be completed on the pro forma IRS Form 990:

  • Page 1, Items A-M
  • Part I, Summary, Lines 1-4 only
  • Part II, Signature Block
  • Part VII, Compensation –Section A only
  • Part VIII, Statement of Revenues
  • Part IX, Statement of Functional Expenses
  • Part XII, Financial Statements and Reporting

Please note that the CFC cannot accept other forms, such as IRS Forms 990-EZ, 990-N, 990-PF, or other comparable forms.
