Reboot: IRS Revising Political Activity Rules

Reboot: IRS Revising Political Activity Rules

Printer-friendly version

The IRS typically holds a regulatory public hearing before revising regulations, according to David Thompson, vice president of public policy for the National Council of Nonprofits. That public hearing was expected sometime this summer but given the huge response during the public comment period in this case, he said it made little sense to have a public hearing on regulations that will be changed anyway.

“It doesn’t make sense to keep fanning the flames of flawed regulations when you know you will revise them,” said Thompson. “It makes sense for them to downplay it too. They’re doing something that just makes sense,” he said. “It presumes there will be a major rewrite but they can’t say that.”
