On May 12, 2011, Adler & Colvin added a Client Alert regarding gift tax enforcement on payments to 501(c)(4) exempt organizations. Based on information shared at the May 6, 2011, meeting of the ABA Exempt Organizations Committee, it appeared that the Internal Revenue Service was pursuing some individual donors for failure to report and pay gift tax on payments to Section 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations. For background on this topic, please click here. On July 7, 2011, the IRS announced that it would no longer pursue 501(c)(4) donors for gift tax and would coordinate with its Chief Counsel to determine whether further guidance is needed. Any future enforcement would be prospective only after notice to the public. See http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=241592,00.html
