CFIF Files Comments in Support of IRS Rulemaking to Protect Donor Privacy

In formal comments filed with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) this week, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) offered strong support for the IRS’s proposed rulemaking to eliminate the requirement that certain nonprofit organizations provide the names and addresses of contributors on Schedule B of their annual tax filings.

As CFIF notes in its filing, "the Proposed Rulemaking would help protect the First Amendment rights of subject organizations and their citizen donors, without negatively impacting the legally permissible handling of the nation’s tax laws or 501(c) organization tax filings."

Lawsuit Settled Over "Animal Carcass Removal" Print
Tuesday, December 04 2012

A restaurant owner and phone book company have settled a lawsuit over the placement of a listing for the Montana restaurant in the "Animal Carcass Removal" section of the yellow pages.

Restaurant owner Hunter Lacey's lawsuit claims the Dex Media Inc. phone book salesman deliberately published the free listing under the "Animal Carcass Removal" section after he refused to buy an advertisement in the phone book. According to the plaintiff, Big Sky Beverage Inc., parent company of Bar 3 Bar-B-Q, the inaccurate listing cost the restaurant owner some of his customers and made him the butt of a Jay Leno joke.

The lawsuit sought damages for alleged negligence, defamation and slander, among other charges. The case ultimately settled, with the phone book company agreeing to make a payment to the restaurant owner of an undisclosed amount.

The salesman no longer works for the company.
