Careful Lobbying Compliance
Does your organization weigh in on the state or city budget, immigration policy, criminal justice reform, rent regulation, or other pressing government issues? It may be lobbying. Public charities can lobby, so long as they stay within the IRS' limit on the amount of lobbying they can do, and they may need to comply with lobbyist registration and reporting requirements.
Our pre-recorded webinar, "Careful Lobbying Compliance: Keeping Track of the Required Reports and Restrictions on Lobbyists' Activities," will explain how to calculate how much lobbying a public charity can do, and when lobbying triggers an obligation to register as a lobbyist. It will also provide easy to follow tips to help registered lobbyists file accurate reports and meet their other regulatory obligations.
