Conservative 'dark money' group faces IRS complaint over tax filings - 2018-04-04
A conservative "dark money" organization hasn't been filing its federal taxes, and two watchdog organizations are asking the IRS to levy penalties.
Americans for Job Security, a nonprofit trade organization that spent millions of dollars boosting Republican congressional candidates, hasn't filed its taxes in three years, according to Issue One and the Campaign Legal Center, which filed a formal complaint this morning.
Not filing tax returns is a failure to comply with federal rules governing nonprofits, Issue One Executive Director Meredith McGehee said.
"The IRS should not let this, or any other dark money group, off the hook for failing to follow these simple rules," she said.
