Taxpayer Compliance Burden Tax compliance burden is defined as the time and money taxpayers spend to comply with their tax filing responsibilities.

    Today, over 70 percent of all tax-exempt organization returns other 
than Form 990-N and all Forms 990-N are prepared using software by the 
taxpayer or with preparer assistance.
    These are forms used by tax-exempt organizations taxpayers. These 
include Forms 990, 990-PF, 990-N, and 990-T, and related schedules tax-
exempt organizations attach to their tax returns (see Appendix-A to 
this notice). In addition, there are numerous regulations, notices and 
Treasury Decisions that are covered by the burden estimate provided in 
this notice. (See Appendix B for a list).

Taxpayer Compliance Burden

    Tax compliance burden is defined as the time and money taxpayers 
spend to comply with their tax filing responsibilities. Time-related 
activities include recordkeeping, tax planning, gathering tax 
materials, learning about the law and what you need to do, and 
completing and submitting the return. Out-of-pocket costs include 
expenses such as purchasing tax software, paying a third-party 
preparer, and printing and postage. Tax compliance burden does not 
include a taxpayer's tax liability, economic inefficiencies caused by 
sub-optimal choices related to tax deductions or credits, or 
psychological costs.

Proposed PRA Submission to OMB

    Title: Returns of Organization Exempt from Income Tax Under Section 
501(c), 527, or 4947(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code.
    OMB Number: 1545-0047.
    Form Numbers: Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, 990-N, 990-T and all 
attachments to these forms and related forms (see the Appendix-A to 
this notice).
    Abstract: OMB number 1545-0047 reports the estimated burden 
incurred by tax-exempt organizations to meet their tax-compliance-
related reporting requirements. The estimate is preliminary and 
reflects only the change in burden related to technical adjustments 
related to updating the number of affected taxpayers to reflect the 
FY2020 forecast.
    Current Actions: There have been changes in regulatory guidance 
related to various forms approved under this approval package during 
the past year. There has been additions and removals of forms included 
in this approval package. It is anticipated that these changes will 
have an impact on the overall burden and cost estimates requested for 
this approval package, however these estimates were not finalized at 
the time of release of this notice. These estimated figures are 
expected to be available by the release of the 30-comment notice from 
Treasury. This approval package is being submitted for renewal purposes 
only.
    Affected Public: Tax-Exempt Organizations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,606,200.
    Total Estimated Time: 52.45 million hours.
    Estimated Time per Respondent: 32.7 hours.
    Total Estimated Out-of-Pocket Costs: $1.50 billion.
    Estimated Out-of-Pocket Cost per Respondent: $932.
    Total Estimated Monetized Burden: $4.17 billion.
    Estimated Total Monetized Burden per Respondent: $2,595.
    Note: Amounts below are for FY2021. Reported time and cost burdens 
are national averages and do not necessarily reflect a ``typical'' 
case. Most taxpayers experience lower than average burden, with 
taxpayer burden varying considerably by taxpayer type. Detail may not 
add due to rounding.
