ICANN and PTI Publish U.S. Tax Returns for Fiscal Year Ending 30 June 2018

31 May 2019

LOS ANGELES – 31 May 2019 – Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and its affiliate Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) published their U.S. tax returns for the fiscal year ending 30 June 2018.

Form 990 is the U.S. tax return for non-profit organizations exempt from income taxes under section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.

ICANN and PTI filed the IRS Form 990, the California CA-199 and CA RRF-1 returns with the appropriate government offices (the Internal Revenue Service "IRS" and California Franchise Tax Board "FTB") for the fiscal year ending 30 June 2018, on 14 May 2019, in compliance with the extended due date of 15 May 2019.

Additionally, ICANN filed for the first time a newly-required Form 990-T. This return applies to U.S. tax-exempt organizations due to new tax regulation in the U.S. effective January 1, 2018. For ICANN, certain parking facilities costs have become subject to taxation as a result of this new regulation.

All of these U.S. tax forms can be found at the following web pages where ICANN and PTI publish financial information.
