Today is FY 2020 Form 471 Deadline!

April 29, 2020

~ Deadline is 11:59 p.m. EDT Tonight ~

Good morning, E-raters!  It’s Form 471 Deadline Day!  The sun is shining (where I am), the birds are chirping, and I can just feel it’s going to be a great final day of this long and unusual FY 2020 filing window.  If you cannot meet today’s deadline, please contact me so we can discuss your options.

Final word of wisdom:  You must file a Form 471 every year of a multi-year contract.  There’s no such thing as a multi-year E-rate funding commitment.

For those of you who still have to file, please let me know if you have any last minute questions.

Happy Filing!
