501(c)(4) Information

Contributions to 501(c)(4) Organizations Posted by Patricia Tyler, Tax Law Community

  "As organizations and individuals gear up for the 2012 election season, those making substantial [emphasis added] contributions to social welfare organizations must be aware that those contributions may be subject to the gift tax. . . .The primary advantage of achieving tax-exempt status under IRC Section 501(c)(4) is that the organization is not subject to the tight restrictions on political activities that apply to IRC Section 501(c)(3) organizations. These organizations are also popular independent campaign vehicles because contributions are not subject to disclosure.  Historically the IRS has not enforced the gift tax in regards to donations to 501(c)(4) organizations.  Recently however, the IRS has taken action to inform several individuals that their contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations might be subject to gift tax.

  "Because of the historical inaction by the IRS to enforce the gift tax and the potential affect on First Amendment rights, the IRS is essentially stirring up a hornets' nest with this enforcement action."

 [The above was quoted from the following but no longer operable URL: http://www.lexisnexis.com/community/taxlaw/blogs/taxstaff/archive/2011/05/23/contributions-to-501-c-4-organization]

6/5/13 The Gift Tax TurboTax [In a nutshell, according to the quoted Web site: "You and your spouse together can give up to $26,000 per person, per year to any number of individuals" without having to pay a gift tax.]

  "The gift tax is perhaps the most misunderstood of all taxes. When it comes into play, this tax is owed by the giver of the gift, not the recipient. You probably have never paid it and probably will never have to. The law completely ignores gifts of up to $13,000 per person, per year, that you give to any number of individuals. (You and your spouse together can give up to $26,000 per person, per year to any number of individuals.)
