New Allegations of Tax Code Violations by Exxon and ALEC Filed with IRS

Common Cause

WASHINGTON - Today, the Center for Media and Democracy and Common Cause provided new evidence to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) showing that the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is falsely claiming tax-exempt status as a charity and that the ExxonMobil Corporation has intentionally misused the organization for nearly two decades to advance its legislative agenda. More than 240 exhibits in the filing detail how the oil giant has used ALEC to promote the company’s climate denial policies and legislative agenda, in gross violation of the 501(c)(3) charitable status.
