This petition for rulemaking, filed by Democracy 21 and the Campaign Legal Center, calls on the IRS to revise its existing regulations relating to the determination of whether an organization that intervenes or participates in elections is entitled to obtain or maintain an exemption from taxation under 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(4). The existing IRS regulations do not conform with the statutory language of section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) nor with the judicial decisions that have interpreted this IRC provision and are, accordingly, contrary to law.
