Charities and Tax Forms

"I have a patron who is looking for nonprofit organizations' IRS form 990"

Foundation Center.org has a database. I looked for those in NYS in 2005 and discovered that 44991 documents matched, though only 100 documents are displayed, so narrowing by name will be necessary.

Grantsmart.org showed 85844 Matches Found for New York, though it may cover more than one year. It claims to have over 620,000 tax returns filed by over 100,000 private foundations and charitable trusts.

If you're looking for aggregate tax data about charities, or for that matters, businesses generally, go to the web page of our good friends at the IRS.

Hurry up and file those taxes!
