Form 990 - Rejection - Schedule B, Item H Checkbox Not Checked

If the return was rejected for the reason "If Item H checkbox is not checked and Line 1 has a value equal to or greater than 5,000, then Schedule B (Form 990, 990-EZ, or 990-PF) must be attached to the Return (Rule Number: F990EZ-034-01)," you will need to check the box for Item H.
