Conservatives Slam Proposed IRS Rule That Charities Collect Donors' Social Security Numbers

Printer-friendly version

Tim Delaney, president and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits, said the proposal "would be devastating for nonprofits and the general public.

"Nonprofits will be hurt because people will be reluctant to make a donation if it means they have to share their private Social Security number, plus it will divert limited resources away from missions to invest instead in costly new data security," Delaney said.

"Likewise, the general public will be hurt when scam artists call up claiming to be nonprofits to get Social Security numbers so they can then steal identities and commit fraud."
