IRS awakes! Media darling suddenly loses tax-exempt status
The IRS has stripped the embattled Council on American-Islamic Relations of its tax-exempt status after the nation’s most prominent Muslim group withheld donor records from the government.
The move by the federal agency follows an expose published by WND Books that revealed these and other violations by CAIR and triggered a federal investigation and audit.
As WND first reported in January 2010, CAIR’s national office has failed to file financial records since 2007 as required by federal law. Registered as a 501(c)(3) organization, the group must detail its revenues and expenses to the IRS in annual reports known as form 990s to maintain its tax-exempt status.
