The House of Representatives just passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a tax reform bill that includes a repeal of the Johnson Amendment.
The Johnson Amendment prohibits all nonprofits, including houses of worship, from meddling in partisan politics while receiving taxpayer subsidized benefits as a nonprofit. Since houses of worship are the only nonprofits that aren’t required to submit detailed financial disclosures to the IRS, repealing or weakening the Johnson Amendment would effectively turn churches into Super PACS. We cannot let this happen.
The Senate Finance Committee has still not revealed the text of its version of a tax reform bill. Urge your Senate to oppose any version of a tax reform bill that undermines the Johnson Amendment.
