November 7, 2008


At this point I think we all know that if it wasn't for the multimillions of dollars in donations and the extraordinary number of Mormon minions put into the field in California and Arizona, props 8 and 102 would not have passed.

Well, we can do something about that. We can personally and directly challenge their tax exempt status.

Thanks to the efforts of a Feast Of Fools chat room friend who goes by the net name of TrickyToro, we have a way to do just that. I am including his entire chat post below because it includes a step by step outline of how we can each file a report of false exemption with the IRS.

To report the LDS Church to the IRS, simply take 5 minutes to print these articles out and any others you can find:


There is also an excellent NY Times Opinion piece that, point-blank, states that the Mormon church led the drive to pass prop 8. It's at: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/06/opinion/06thu1.html?ref=opinion. If you do copy this article, I suggest highlighting the 5th paragraph before you include it with your IRS submission.

Then print and fill out http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf

List the taxpayer as:

Thomas S. Monson, et al
50 East North Temple
Salt Lake City, Utah 84150

List his occupation as President and the business as the ridiculously full name of the church (same address).

The full name is: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Check the boxes for False Exemption and Public/Political Corruption.

Then in the Comments section demand that the LDS Church be fined and their tax-exempt status revoked for repeated and blatant violations of the IRS's separate of church and state rules, and for conspiring to interfere with a state's political process.

Check Yes under "Are books/records available?" and write in "campaign finance records."

You don't have to provide any of your own personal info. Mail the form and the printed articles to:

Internal Revenue Service
Fresno, CA 93888

I suggest keeping copies of the articles and the filled-out IRS form that you submit. It would greatly enhance the impact of this action if we send copies to our own senators and congressmen. And just in case the current IRS director chooses to ignore our submissions, we can always resubmit after the Obama administration (and a new IRS director) take office in January.

I also want to give a big shout out and thank you to TrickyToro for taking the time away from his schoolwork to put this info together.

I strongly urge everyone to do this. And encourage your friends to take part in this effort as well. If you have a blog or any online venue that would allow you to post this info, please feel free to use this posting in its entirety.
