Aprill: The Americans for Prosperity Tax Controversy

Following President Obama's lead, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has filed a complaint with the IRS regarding Americans for Prosperity Foundation ("APF"), a § 501(c)(3) organization. The complaint alleges that APF is a lobbying or advocacy organization ineligible for exemption under § 501(c)(3) and that it is engaged in prohibited intervention in a political campaign through advertisements run by its sister organization, Americans for Prosperity, a § 501(c)(4) organizations. Ellen Aprill (Loyola-L.A.) has a detailed post on the tax controversy. For more, see:
