Why do Exempt Organizations are required to File 990-T?


Organizations that are recognized as tax-exempt may still be liable for tax on their unrelated business income. This income commonly comes from a trade or business, regularly carried on, that is not substantially related to the charitable, educational, or other purposes that are the basis of the organization's exempt status.

So, if an exempt organization has $1,000 or more of gross income from all the unrelated businesses for the tax year, then it is required to file Form 990-T to report Unrelated business taxable income to the IRS.
