Important Legal Information for Michigan Hospitals: IRS regulations prohibit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organizations from endorsing candidates for public office or engaging in political campaign activities or expenditures. The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that recognized a Constitutional right to independently advocate for or against a political candidate does not supersede IRS Regulations that continue to prohibit political activity by tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. The prohibition against political activity applies to organizations, not individuals. Accordingly, employees, officers and officials of tax-exempt organizations may engage in political activity if they are acting in their individual capacities and do not in any way utilize the organization’s financial resources, other resources (such as e-mail or newsletters), facilities, or personnel, and clearly and unambiguously indicate that the actions taken or the statements made are those of the individual and not of the organization. For more information, refer to the Election Activities and 501 (C)(3) Hospitals document. These statements are offered for informational purposes only and should not be relied on as legal advice.
