Leaders and lobbyists in Washington, DC representing charitable, religious, and philanthropic organizations have convinced most lawmakers that the new 21-percent unrelated business income tax (UBIT) on nonprofits for the expenses for transportation benefits, like transit passes and parking, makes no sense and should be repealed. Indeed, even the chairman of the House tax-writing committee who put this new unfair and burdensome tax into the 2017 law is now saying it ought to be eliminated. BUT, that's not enough. Your Representatives and Senators need to hear from you and other nonprofits -
immediately - if we hope to turn the general agreement that the law is wrong into urgent action that gets it repealed. Congress must take action to repeal the transportation tax on nonprofits, and there're only two weeks (10 working days) to do it before a new Congress takes over and advocacy efforts will have to start all over again.
