To the Point

Our nonprofit tax-exempt organization has been operating well under the $25,000 annual revenue threshold that I understand exempts our group from the requirement to file a Form 990 tax information return with the IRS.  I believe I recently read that that exclusion no longer applies.  Can you summarize the present requirements for filing a return?
