Letter to the Incoming Tax Committee Chairmen: Enact Policies to Build Stronger Nonprofits and Stronger Communities

Printer-friendly version

Letter to incoming chairsOn November 26, the National Council of Nonprofits sent a letter to the incoming chairs of the congressional tax-writing committees identifying a slate of policy recommendations designed “to promote stronger nonprofits and stronger communities.” When the 116th Congress convenes in January, Representative Richard Neal (D-MA) is expected to be the new Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee; Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has decided to once again be Chair of the Senate Finance Committee. The letter congratulates the presumptive chairs for “assuming the lead in revising tax policies that work fairly for all Americans” and for pledging to pursue bipartisan solutions. Among the recommendations listed in the letter are preserving the longstanding Johnson Amendment, repealing new taxes on tax-exempt entities, expanding charitable giving incentives, and improving oversight of the IRS. We invite readers to read the letter and share examples of how the recommendations, if pursued, would positively affect your missions and to identify additional policy priorities that your organization is pursuing.
