Fairfax, VA – The National Rifle Association this week submitted formal comments in response to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued by the Internal Revenue Service on November 29, 2013, entitled "Guidance for Tax-Exempt Social Welfare Organization on Candidate-Related Political Activities."
An excerpt from the letter:
Last year's IRS Targeting Scandal is not unique—it is merely the most recent illustration of the discriminatory and politically biased enforcement activity that vague and overbroad revenue rules make possible.
