Tax exempt groups owe IRS nearly $1 billion

Some organizations exempt from paying federal income tax are avoiding paying other taxes too—almost $1 billion worth. “Tax-exempt organizations have a responsibility to remit to the IRS taxes that have been withheld from employees as well as other applicable Federal taxes,” said J. Russell George, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. “Failure to remit these taxes is a very serious matter.” Most of the unpaid amounts are for payroll taxes of their employees as well as other taxes.
