White Nationalist Group Loses Tax-Exempt Status
The Internal Revenue Service revoked NPI’s 501(c)) nonprofit tax-exempt status because the organization failed to file tax returns for three consecutive years, the Los Angeles Times reported this week.
The revocation was retroactive to May 15 of last year when the nation’s leading alt-right group’s 2015 tax return would have been due. Tax records for nonprofits and charities are available for public inspection, showing total annual donations and how the money is expended, including salaries.
The revocation of NPI’s tax-exempt status brings into question, it appears, any tax-deductible donations given to NPI and claimed on individuals’ tax returns as charitable contributions. NPI’s national visibility grew during last year’s presidential bid of Donald Trump whose candidacy excited the white nationalist views of the alt-right.
