CAIR claims to be a "Muslim-American civil rights group." For some reason, they have been withholding their donor lists from the IRS. This has cost them their tax-exempt status. Many believe CAIR to be a front group for Hamas.
(IPT) — Donations to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) no longer are tax deductible after the organization was among 275,000 tax-exempt organizations purged earlier this month by the Internal Revenue Service.
The groups failed to file required annual reports, known as form 990s, detailing their revenues and expenses, for three consecutive years. CAIR had been a non-profit on its own, but in 2007, the IRS approved a separate tax-exempt CAIR Foundation. The foundation never filed any subsequent reports. Both the foundation and CAIR national are on the purge list.
