New York Nonprofit Leaders Blast Passage of GOP Tax Plan

Printer-friendly version

“We are incredibly disappointed that Congress or at least the GOP members of Congress did not take into consideration the nonprofit sector, the impact the tax reform would have on charitable giving and – possibly more important – the impact it will have on the communities it will serve,” Sharon Stapel, executive director of the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, said in an interview.

She added that another danger looms in 2018 besides the expected cuts in federal support for social services. Just as Republicans have tried and tried again to change the tax code, repeal of the Johnson Amendment could re-emerge as a priority for Republicans who want to allow charities and nonprofits to open their wallets to political donations, she said.

“This is not the end of the fight to maintain the protections of the Johnson Amendment," Stapel said. “There will be another time."
