Close the secret money loophole!

If we don’t make our voices heard, the IRS might give official blessing to the billionaires and special interests who secretly spend millions to influence our elections. But with your help, we can make sure these wealthy donors can’t hide their influence in our elections. 

Please customize the message below and we'll file it with the IRS. The more personal your message is, the better chance we have of the IRS doing the right thing. Please keep it professional and respectful because it will become a part of the public record!

Please add to the message below:

  • Why do you personally care about this -- what makes you mad about letting wealthy donors hide behind IRS loopholes?
  • Why should the IRS listen to everyday Americans about this?

REG-134417-13 Proposed Guidance for Tax-Exempt Social Welfare Organizations on Candidate-Related Political Activities

Dear [Decision Maker],

I'm deeply concerned that the IRS may allow "social welfare" 501(c)4 groups to spend up to 49% of their budgets on political campaign activities and electioneering. This would allow millions of dollars from anonymous sources into our elections.

To comply with the Internal Revenue Code, I urge the IRS to use the ongoing rulemaking process to require that these groups spend no more than an insubstantial amount of their resources on political campaign activities.
