Statements Needed from Catholic Nonprofits for Senate Finance Committee

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) has invited the public to submit recommendations on "providing much-needed tax relief to middle-class individuals . . . and reforms to the individuals income-tax system."

NCDC, as a member of the Charitable IRA Initiative, has submitted our recommendation and request that the Legacy IRA Act (H.R. 1337) be included in the bill now being drafted by the Senate Finance Committee. (See background information on H.R. 1337)

We are now asking all Catholic nonprofits to submit short statements to Senator Hatch by July 17, 2017 at [email protected].
