GAO testified on the lobbying and political activities of tax-exempt organizations. GAO found that: (1) Congress enacted legislation to restrict the lobbying and political activities of tax-exempt organizations; (2) Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data on the nature and extent of lobbying and political activities, although limited, indicate that certain types of tax-exempt organizations are more likely to engage in lobbying and political activities than others; (3) IRS does not have a separate compliance program to monitor such activities; and (4) the relevant IRS form provides limited information on the lobbying and political activities of tax-exempt organizations.
