We urge you to immediately take action suggested in our recent policy alert. Negotiators are moving very quickly and decisions may be made on Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Take action!

Don't Let Tax Reform Devastate the Work of Nonprofits. Take Action Now!
Your U.S. Senators need to hear from you TODAY, before debate begins on the Senate floor. The most effective way of advocating on a fast-moving bill is to pick up the phone. So, if you have time to do only one thing today, have that one action be making a phone call to each of your Senators. Make the call!

Federal Tax Reform Update
Last week, the U.S. House and Senate both released tax plans that have varied effects on nonprofits. The U.S. House Plan Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R.1) weakens the Johnson Amendment, would reduce charitable donations and limits nonprofit financing options. The U.S. Senate released its own tax reform plan, also known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that would also change many nonprofit tax laws. While the Senate version is an improvement over the House plan, because it makes no changes to the Johnson Amendment and preserves private activity bonds, there are other key changes that should be of concern for nonprofits in the Senate tax reform package. NAO, working with our counterpart organization in North Carolina, is able to issue you this side-by-side comparison of the two tax plans and the issues of concern for nonprofits.
Across the board, charitable nonprofits will get a bad deal if these plans go forward without modification. Please read NAO's more detailed policy alert here and Take Action!
