Public Citizen calls on the IRS to investigate Freedom Partners

by - September 26, 2013

Public Citizen today called on the IRS to investigate whether Freedom Partners, a relatively obscure group but one of the largest entities to fund political activities in the 2012 election cycle, is a legitimate business league, as it claims on its tax forms. Freedom Partners is registered as a 501(c)(6) organization. Business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues can be exempt from taxes under this section of the IRS code. Business leagues must be made up of members who have a common business interest and whose purpose is to promote that interest.
