IRS SealRecently, the IRS proposed new regulations governing 501(c)(4) social welfare groups. Proponents argue that the proposed regulations will more clearly define permissible political activities of organizations operated as 501(c)(4)s. Opponents see the proposed regulations as further infringement on the free speech and association rights of the groups and those who contribute to them, and argue that the proposed regulations will unduly restrict their activities. Our experts discussed the proposed regulations, the likelihood of them being implemented, and the road forward.
