Optimism is love

Valentine's Day, February 14, has come and gone for this year; however, that giddy feeling of love can stay with you every day.

How can that be? Easy! Join an Optimist Club and your attitude will change. Reading the Optimist Creed aloud with friends is just the beginning of a new, positive lifestyle. Among other things, soon you'll be performing random acts of kindness, planning projects and programs and giving your time to make your community a better place to live.

That, my friends, is how you feel love.

Now do it! Join your local Optimist Club today.

E-file your Optimist Club's 990 by February 15

It's an annual thing. Once per year in February, this website reminds all US Optimist Clubs to file their taxes. The form 990 is due February 15.

It's pretty simple to e-file. All you need is the following:
  • Employer identification number (EIN), also known as a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN).
  • Tax year 
  • Legal name and mailing address
  • Any other names the organization uses
  • Name and address of a principal officer
  • Web site address if the organization has one
  • Confirmation that the organization’s annual gross receipts are $50,000 or less
  • If applicable, a statement that the organization has terminated or is terminating (going out of business)
E-file is an option for tax-exempt organizations not required to file a long form which includes nearly all Optimist Clubs except those managing large sums of money (over $50,000) or property.

Complete instructions and log-in filing information can be found here.  Form990-N Electronic Filing System e-Postcard. It is free to file and required in order to maintain your tax-exempt status as an Optimist Club.
