Lane :

Hi

Lane :

A homeowners’ association that is not ex­empt under section 501(c)(4) and that is a con­dominium management association, a residential real estate management association, or a timeshare association generally may elect under the provisions of Code section 528 to receive certain tax benefits that, in effect, permit it to exclude its exempt function income from its gross income.

Lane :

Let me know and can go further here... the answer really depends on what type of organization you are ... (and if the answer is that you are now a for-profit, there is no exemption for not filing the 1120) ... DO please let me know ...

Is there any minimum revenue exemption which would allow an association exemption from filing ?

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

ON the 1120-H there is never a REQUIREMENT to file.

From the purpose of form section from IRS:

A homeowners association files Form
1120-H as its income tax return to
take advantage of certain tax benefits.
These benefits, in effect, allow the
association to exclude exempt
function income (defined later) from
its gross income.

This is a return that is filed in order to elect certain treatment.

So, here the exemption is by choice, and further, would be needed only when at least some exempt function is there in that year. But again this is not a required form.




ON the 1120 itself, no there are no exemptions UNLESS you elect to file the 1120-H




See this from IRS:

Who Must File

Unless exempt under section 501, all domestic corporations (including corporations in bankruptcy) must file an income tax return whether or not they have taxable income. Domestic corporations must file Form 1120, unless they are required, or elect to file a special return.





Who must file (for 1120)

See this: http://www.irs.gov/instructions/i1120/ch01.html#d0e203


Purposeof form (1120-H)
