Nonprofits Ask Congress To Strengthen Charity Incentives

Nonprofits Ask Congress To Strengthen Charity Incentives

Printer-friendly version

A group representing nonprofit organizations has asked the U.S. Congress to strengthen charitable giving incentives and repeal two parts of the federal tax overhaul that it said harms nonprofit employees in a letter to the incoming chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means committees.

The Monday letter from the National Council of Nonprofits told Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, that the beginning of their chairmanships creates a “perfect opportunity” to create tax policies that will promote stronger nonprofits. The group offered a variety of recommendations to consider, including backing the Johnson Amendment, which is a provision in the tax code that protects Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) nonprofits by ensuring they do not endorse or oppose political candidates.
