Congressional Research Service Highlights Concerns About Tax-Exempt Organizations

The Congressional Research Service recently issued a statement (available through Tax Analysts; subscription required) listing areas of congressional concern relating to tax-exempt organizations and charitable giving.  These areas include:

  • Increasing transparency, accountability, and tax compliance, both generally and with respect to particular types of organizations such as tax-exempt hospitals.
  • Efficiently encouraging charitable contributions and ensuring they are used for appropriate purposes.
  • Possibly increasing limitations on or disclosure of political campaign activities, as well as the recent church challenges to the prohibition on such activities by section 501(c)(3) organizations.

The statement also lists the following CRS personnel as "Issue Team Members" for these subjects: Erika Lunder (Coordinator), Donald J. Marples, Nonna A. Noto, John R. Luckey, Jane G. Gravelle, L. Paige Whitaker, Molly F. Sherlock, Edward C. Liu, Steven Maguire, and Jennifer Teefy.
