    The “Progressive” applications weren’t held up for months like the Tea Party groups. Plus, the progressive organizations were applying for 501c(3) status, not 501c(4). There’s a HUGE difference. 501c(3)s can’t do ANY political activity, and donations to them are tax deductible.

    Exemption requirements: 501©(3) organizations

    To be tax-exempt under section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501©(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
    -
    Reg.1. 501©(4)-1(a)(2)(i) provides that:[A]n
    organization is operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare if it is primarily engaged in promoting in someway the common good and general welfare of the community.

    Notice the word primarily, it was changed by the IRS not the Congress. The correct word is exclusively and that is why the problem. No clear definition and to fix it that alteration must be returned to it its pre 1959 word exclusive.

    - Number of Teabagger groups denied special tax-exempt status: 0
    .
    - Not even mentioning they have that status just by existing; they “special” they’re looking for is to hide who their donors are.

    The conservative groups that applied in 2010 are STILL waiting to hear from the IRS. No, they were not officially denied, they are jsut waiting, and waiting, and waiting……..
    I would equate that to being denied.
    Of course, you can’t understand that, since your thought-providers at MSNBC tell you otherwise, and you seem to be unable to read.
