“It is beyond disgraceful to imagine federal taxpayers subsidizing the partisan preferences of billionaires who easily could have given to a Democrat super PAC in 2020,” the CRA said in a statement shared with FOX Business.
“But, of course, then they would not have been able to take a tax deduction, so they disguised the political nature of their donations and shuffled them through ‘charitable’ intermediaries, making ordinary Americans foot the bill,” the CRA continued.
The CRA noted that federal law prohibits individuals from making donations intended to illegitimately aid one political party over another.
The complaints said the IRS must deny any personal income tax exemptions collected by Zuckerberg and Chan for their donations to the CTCL, CEIR, and NVAHI during the 2020 election cycle. The CRA also requested that the IRS terminate the tax exemptions of the three groups.
