IRS: Letter from CLC & Democracy 21 regarding Supplemental Information for Investigation


A supplemental letter to the September 28, 2011 letter sent to the Internal Revenue Service. In the September 28th letter, Democracy 21 and the Campaign Legal Center called on the IRS to investigate whether four organizations – Crossroads GPS, the American Action Network, Americans Elect and Priorities USA – are operating in violation of their claimed tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code because each organization is engaging in far more political activity than the Code allows for “social welfare” organizations. The supplemental letter provides additional information on the political activities of three of the four groups addressed in the September 28th letter, the American Action Network, Americans Elect and Crossroads GPS that further demonstrates that these groups are not entitled to section 501(c)(4) tax-exempt status.
