Dear Lion Leaders,

We are sharing some important changes that impact new chartered clubs in the United States:

  • Clubs chartered in the U.S. between December 18, 2015 and July 8, 2016 may need to file Form 8976 with the IRS by September 6, 2016.
  • All new clubs chartered in the U.S. after July 8, 2016 will need to file Form 8976 with the IRS. LCI will include information in new charter club packets to help clubs comply with this new IRS requirement.

We have sent the message below to new clubs chartered between December 18, 2015 and July 8, 2016. Please help ensure that these clubs file Form 8976 if needed.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Dear Club Leader,

The IRS has passed a new regulation requiring all newly-formed 501(c)(4) organizations to notify the IRS of their intention to operate as a 501(c)(4) by filing Form 8976, as stated in Internal Revenue Code 26 CFR 1.506. Currently, all Lions Clubs operate as 501(c)(4) organizations under the Internal Revenue Code. Your club may need to file Form 8976.

Do I need to file Form 8976?

  • My club filed tax documents with the IRS prior to July 8, 2016 – you do NOT need to file Form 8976 if the club has filed annual taxes with the IRS (Form 990, 990EZ or Form 990-N) or the club has filed form 1024 prior to July 8, 2016.
  • My club did NOT file tax documents with the IRS prior to July 8, 2016 – YOU NEED TO FILE Form 8976 if you have not filed tax documents with the IRS prior to July 8, 2016.

When do I need to file Form 8976?

All new clubs chartered between December 18, 2015 and July 8, 2016 that are required to file Form 8976 must file by September 6, 2016. Failure to file Form 8976 may result in fines of $20 per day up to $5,000.

All new clubs chartered on or after July 8, 2016 must file Form 8976 within 60 days of its charter date.

How do I file Form 8976?

Form 8976 and a $50 filing fee must be submitted online at https://services.irs.gov/registration/. The IRS will automatically supply a confirmation when you submit the required information. Please maintain this confirmation for your records. Please note that this is a one-time filing for new clubs.

Where can I get more information?

Any questions regarding these requirements may be direct to the Legal Division by calling 1-630-203-3847 or by sending your questions to legal@lionsclubs.org.
