IRS FORM 990
What is the IRS Form 990?
Southern Iowa Electric Cooperative has an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 501(c)(12) tax exempt designation and is organized as a "not-for-profit" cooperative. Most entities exempt from paying income tax under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code are required to file an information tax return each year. Your Cooperative files an IRS Form 990 tax return which is made available to the general public, as required by the IRS. Form 990 provides details on the organization's finances, compensation of certain individuals, governance, and other information.
Directors and designated staff members are required to complete an annual IRS Form 990 questionnaire which is processed by the Cooperative's Auditor and included within the IRS filing of Form 990 for the specific year. Typically, this task occurs in November, December, or January.
