The IRS made a contract in March with the Urban Institute to turn over five years’ worth(that’s tax years 1996-2001) of Form 990s filed by the entire universe of public charities (which includes community foundations) on CD-ROM, with the intention that they will be made more accessible to the public.

 990s in the Spotlight   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
These stories bring home a point that many observers of the field have been making for years: Organizations that don't pay more attention to their 990 tax returns do so at their own peril.
Nonprofits and foundations have traditionally treated their 990s - the 990 and 990-EZ for public charities and the 990-PF for private foundations - solely as vehicles for reporting their financial information to the IRS.
A growing number of resources are available to help nonprofits use 990-PFs as a grantseeking tool and to help donors use 990s to make giving decisions.

 IJNL Vol 4 Iss 1: Trends in Self-Regulation and Transparency of Nonprofit Organizations in the U.S.
Scanned versions of all 990s and 990PFs received by the IRS were posted on the Internet by Guidestar in 2000 in a program worked out by Guidestar, the Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics and the IRS.
Quality reporting on 990s is an increasing issue: (1) to improve the quality of the required data and information, eliminating blanks and improperly filled out forms; and (2) to improve the user-friendliness of the 990 document.
But Peter Swords has discovered that “large numbers of cases of abuse (of the charitable trust) that (IRS and state agencies) investigate and prosecute are originally brought to their attention from outside sources, particularly by stories appearing in the newspapers and other media.” Disclosure, thus, helps society deal with several issues.

 Comments to the Treasury on Widely Available Regulations
HR 2337 requires nonprofits to give or mail copies of their annual Form 990s to anyone who requests them in mail or in person for a reasonable cost.
A nonprofit group would thus be able to protect itself from the risk of harassment and IRS penalties for non-disclosure simply by sending a copy of its Form 990 to the IRS on a diskette.
Any of the other approaches to making Form 990s "widely available" (such as having each group post its Form 990 on its own Web site, or using private repositories), will be much more costly for the nonprofit sector and for the public.
