Political Tax Law after Citizens United: A Time for Reform
Sponsor
Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations presents -
The Norman A. Sugarman Memorial Lecture in Nonprofit Law
APR 22, 2010
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations
When handing down the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the majority criticized the chilling effect on First Amendment speech of complex, uncertain rules. The Internal Revenue Service uses a vague "facts and circumstances" approach to judge when a nonprofit organization engages in political campaign activity. Based on 30 years of experience wrestling with this problem, Mr. Colvin proposes a thorough reform of the federal tax law definition of political activity, with safe harbors, bright lines, and above all, simplicity and ease of understanding.

The biennial Norman A. Sugarman Memorial Lecture in Nonprofit Law is funded by gifts from Mr. Sugarman's law firm, Baker & Hostetler, LLP, its partners, and others to honor his memory and to continue his efforts on behalf of the philanthropic sector.
