IRS Suspends Tamil Foundation for Terrorism Ties

We previously blogged about the suspension in late 2007 of the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization, Inc.'s tax-exempt status after the organization was designated under Executive Order 13224 as supporting or engaging in terrorist activity or supporting terrorism.  The IRS recently announced that the related Tamil Foundation, Inc. of Cumberland, Maryland has had its tax-exempt status (and ability to receive tax deductible contributions) suspended effective February 11, 2009 for the same reason.  According to a press report, the Foundation is accused of being part of a support network for the Tamil rebel group in Sri Lanka.
