As reported in today's Daily Tax Report, IRS EO Director, Lois Lerner, stated in a July 17th letter to an organization raising concerns about the political campaign activities of 501(c)(4) organizations:
The IRS is aware of the current public interest in this issue. These regulations have been in place since 1959. We will consider proposed changes in this area as we work with the IRS Office of Chief Counsel and the Treasury Department's Office of Tax Policy to identify tax issues that should be addressed through regulations and other published guidance.
