What is Schedule B?

Schedule B, Schedule of Contributors is a supplementary schedule filed annually by tax-exempt organizations (Form 990/990-EZ) and private foundations (Form 990-PF) for reporting significant contributions received by the organization during the tax year.

It contains detailed information about donors who contribute $5,000 or more during the reporting period, including their names, addresses, and contribution amounts.

Who must file Schedule B?

Not all tax-exempt organizations are mandated to file Schedule B. However, those falling under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, encompassing charitable, educational, and religious organizations, must adhere to this requirement.

If your exempt organization or private foundation receives substantial contributions meeting or exceeding the $5,000 threshold from a single donor, Schedule B becomes a necessary filing obligation. You must be attached along with your information return.
