Does Hopkins House pay taxes?

In accordance with IRS regulations, Hopkins House annually makes available to the public IRS Form 990. Form 990, entitled "Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax," is a report that must be filed each year with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by organizations exempt from Federal income taxes under section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, and whose annual receipts are normally more than $25,000 a year. It is an information return and not an income tax return since the organizations that file it do not pay taxes except, in certain cases an organization may have to pay an "unrelated business income tax". This document is useful in understanding the financial strength of the organization, sources of income, and use of funds: IRS Form 990.
