LOCAL ROSE SOCIETIES
LOCAL ROSE SOCIETIES ARE A GREAT WAY TO GROW TOGETHER
Local Rose Societies are more than just social clubs! They are a chance to get out into the garden, whether it be a public one or your own, make friends, learn to grow roses, exhibit roses, arrange roses and participate in rose shows locally and nationally.
Rose Societies span all across the country, and if there isn't one in your area yet, CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT STARTING ONE!

LOCAL SOCIETY GUIDELINES
This guide is designed to provide accurate, up-to-date information about the American Rose Society. We hope it will answer many of your questions about society work. For those questions the guide may not answer, you will find listed all of the American Rose Society leadership – both volunteer and national staff – as a directory to enable asking your questions in person.

TAX & INSURANCE INFORMATION FOR LOCAL SOCIETIES
Tax Exempt I-990N
It is that time of year again; time to file your I-990N. This is an IRS requirement for all local rose societies whose income is less than $50,000.
The 990-N MUST be filed no later than the 15th day of the 5th month following the end of your tax year. For most of you that means this must be filed by May 15, 2020.
*Please note: If you do not file a 990-N by May 15, 2018 you are risking losing your societies non-profit status.
For information about filing the 990-N please click here.
The 990-N form is filled out online and takes about 10 minutes.
You will receive an email confirmation* once you submit the 990-N to the IRS.
* Please check your spam/Junk folder if you do not receive an email confirmation.
To file the 990-N click here.
You will need your society’s EIN. When you enter the EIN the American Rose Society is listed as the business you are filing for. This is correct. As you proceed through the form you will enter your society’s name as the Does Business As name.
