Pomerantz Back In News

The Washington Post needed a comment about the IRS’ new rules governing 501(c)(4) exempt organizations for its November 28 article “New IRS rules add both clarity and confusion about the role of advocacy groups in politics” and DC-area fan John Pomeranz filled the bill —

“It’s the IRS scandal that pushed them to do it, but it’s terrific that they’re having a full regulatory process,” said lawyer John Pomeranz, who serves on a committee of tax law experts advising the Bright Lines Project, which developed model rules to govern the political activity of social welfare groups. “It has to get fixed, and they recognize it.”
