Comments on Draft Guidance for Tax-Exempt Social Welfare Organizations on Candidate-Related Political Activities

February 27, 2014

​Sent to the IRS on proposed rules related to political campaign activities of tax-exempt nonprofits. The comments note particular concern about the possibility that the IRS could extend proposed restrictions on campaign-related activities of so-called social welfare organizations under section 501(c)(4) to also include section 501(c)(3) organizations.
