Information is also reported by state and for 254 metropolitan statistical areas. Below are some highlights of the report.

Results of NCCS Survey on E-filing


In March 2002, GuideStar hosted a survey written by the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute (NCCS) on nonprofit attitudes toward filing IRS Form 990 electronically. Some 387 nonprofit managers and board members took it, and the results mirror those of an official NCCS survey of a random sample of 485 nonprofit financial executives. The vast majority of respondents to the GuideStar-hosted survey said that they would try e-filing themselves or recommend it to their CPAs. This is big news, coming on top of recent IRS hints that e-filing will be offered in 2004 for submitting returns for fiscal year 2003.
