The Arc Submits Comments on Rule to Limit Political Activity

On February 26, The Arc and several chapters submitted comments in response to a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  The IRS proposed a number of troubling changes for social welfare organizations (known as 501(c)(4) non-profit organizations).  While The Arc appreciates the need to create clearer rules for allowable political activity for the entire non-profit sector, the proposed regulations would create more problems than they solve, having a chilling effect on 501(c)(3) organizations that would stifle civic participation for and on behalf of vulnerable populations.  To read The Arc’s comments, visit our website.
