New York Attorney General Sues Trump Treasury, IRS For Failing To Comply With The Law





New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) on Monday filed a lawsuit against President Trump’s Treasury Department and IRS, arguing both agencies have refused information requests about an abrupt rules change reducing donor disclosure requirements for certain tax-exempt groups.

“My office depends on these critical donor disclosure forms to be able to adequately oversee non-profit organizations in New York,” said James, who filed the suit alongside New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal (D).

“Not only was this policy change made without notice, the Treasury and the IRS are now refusing to comply with the law to release information about the rationale for these changes. No one is above the law — not even the federal government — and we will use every tool to ensure they comply with these regulations to provide transparency and accountability.”



James announced the lawsuit on Twitter, “We’ve filed a lawsuit against the Trump Treasury Department & IRS for failing to respond to records requests as required by law.”

She added: “The agency eliminated donor disclosure requirements for tax-exempt groups & refuses to comply w/the law to explain the rationale for these changes.”
