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."

A class action lawsuit has been filed against rock legend Madonna after she changed the start time of her concerts from 8:30pm to 10:30pm.

Nate Hollander, who is suing Madonna and her concert organizer, Live Nation, claims the tickets he purchased back in August for a December concert in Miami Beach are now much less valuable because of the later start time. Hollander, who paid $1,024.95 for three tickets, says it's ridiculous for the Tuesday evening show to start at 10:30pm. According to the lawsuit, Madonna has not been punctual on tour, often arriving two hours later than scheduled.

At a recent concert Madonna told fans, "Here's something you all need to understand ... and that is, the queen is never late."
