A new feature has appeared on the Orly Taitz blog, DefendOurFreedoms.us, a “NonProfit Federal Tax ID#” down at the bottom of the page.
I suppose this is in response to calls for more transparency at sites like hers and Phil Berg’s. However, donors should be aware that while the Defend Our Freedoms Foundation may be a non-profit, it is not a charity, not a 501(c)(3). Donations to the DOFF are not tax deductible.
The way to verify a charity, an organization eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions, is through the IRS Search for Charities page. The quick search is to put the word “Defend” in the search box, and the name type “Starts with”.
Orly never says contributions to her are tax deductible, but someone might mistakenly confuse a non-profit with a charity. Since Defend Our Freedoms Foundation is in essence a political organization, it can never be 501(c)(3).
