IRS Revokes Antigay Group's Tax Exempt Status
August 01 2011 9:25 AM ET
The Internal Revenue Service revoked tax-exempt status last year for the antigay group Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, Ex-Gay Watchreports.
The group’s tax-exempt status was revoked in May 2010 after it failed to file multiple required 990 forms for three consecutive years. The result, Ex-Gay Watch notes: AFTAH “can no longer be considered a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, and there is no process for appeal. Donations made to them before 6/10/2011 are still deductible by donors, though any income after revocation may be taxed and require filing of a federal return.”
Despite this, information on AFTAH’s website as of Monday still claims that donations made to the organization, designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, are tax-deductible.
