  4. Make any other applicable entries on this screen

Why is the question on Line 4 is blank on Form 990, Page 3, Part IV?

This question will remain blank until the entity is identified as a Section 501(c)(3) organization. If this entity is a Section 501(c)(3), it must be indicated under Client Information. To do this:

To mark Line 4 Yes on Form 990, Page 3, Part IV:

  1. Go to Input Return Form 990 Schedules  Pol. Acts and Lobbying (Sch. C)
  2. Select Political Campaign & Lobbying
