Big Changes are Coming for QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Nonprofit Desktop Versions.
2021 IRS Deadlines for Nonprofits
New IRS Rules for 1099 Independent Contractors
Along with all the other changes we have dealt with in 2020, the IRS has also changed how organizations report the money paid to independent contractors, or as they prefer to label it, Non-employee Compensation.
In past years, if your organization paid a person for services who was NOT an employee, you may have needed to file a 1099-Misc for the total amount given over the year. The 1099-Misc listed royalties, rents, and other miscellaneous items, but its most common use was for payments to independent contractors.
Starting in 2020, the IRS now requires payments to independent contractors are shown on a new form 1099-NEC (non-employee compensation) instead of the 1099-MISC (miscellaneous).

For this example, I assume: the parents apply directly to the government or grantor for the scholarship money is paid directly to the school payments are received by semester from the grantor if a student drops out, the scholarship money is prorated and given back to the grantor...
Do I Need to File a Form 990EZ? When Do I File a 990 N or 990 EZ?
The IRS form 990 is ordinarily due by the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the charity’s tax year. But 2020 has been anything but ordinary.
Organizations with calendar year-ends who need to file a Form 990, 990EZ, 990N, or 990T, the deadline was moved from May 15th to July 15th. It was nice to have a breather, but July 15th is going to be here before we know what hits us.
