Library of Congress. Congressional Research Service [Browse]
[S.l] : [s.n.], 2008.
15 p. : digital, PDF file.


Summary note
Examines restrictions imposed on campaign activity by churches under tax code and campaign finance laws, including the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), which prohibits corporations from funding broadcast communications made within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary that "refer" to a Federal office candidate. Discusses recent IRS political activity compliance initiative, and provides examples of church inquiries. Analyzes H.R. 2275, to repeal the political campaign prohibition in the tax code, but preserve applicable campaign finance regulations under FECA.
