IRS may revoke tax-exempt status of Islamic charities in Ga.

May 17, 2010

At least five Islamic charities in Georgia are at risk for revocation of their federal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.  In 2006, federal legislation required most nonprofit organizations to file 990 forms annually regardless of how little revenue the organization took in.  If an organization fails to file its forms for three years, then it will lose its tax-exempt status.  That means the organization would have to pay taxes and that donations to the organization aren’t tax deductible.

The deadline for charities to file is today, May 17.  The Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics has made data available on all charities that have not filed as of last month.  A review of the data by Money Jihad shows these organizations as non-filers:

  • American Muslim Alert Foundation Inc (Atlanta)
  • Madrasat AL-Huda Islamic School of Augusta
  • Majlis Eid Committee of Greater Atlanta Inc
  • Murid Islamic Community in Atlanta Inc
  • Baytul Barham (Duluth)

Many charities, even legitimate ones, are in danger of losing their tax exempt status.  However, given the murky track record of Islamic charities in the United States using zakat to fund overseas jihadists such as Hamas, the lack of any reports being filed by these groups with the IRS give particular cause for alarm.

  3. Mosques that discriminate against women should not recieve tax exempt status. Or they should at least lose half of it. To do otherwise means that female taxpayers, who are not able to participate fully, support them.

  5. Assalaam alaykum, Fellow Muslim Brothers/Sisters,

    My name is Alhaji Dr. Usman Sudan, I am a Sudanese,

    I am the Chief Physiologist and head of logistics operations to the late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, before he was killed by the American coalitions. The below website will help you to understand what I am talking about.

    When my late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, see clearly hand writing on the wall that the Americans will never leave him to live, he handed over the sum of US$50m United states dollars, and told me to go keep it in a security vault.

    As you can remember, that America and its Allys has been marginalizing our Muslim brothers and sisters in Afghanistan and other parts of the world, and they are living in abject poverty and it has been my problem to find a way to help them and I believe this is the best opportunity for me to assist them, and that is why I have to do this as my contribution to Jihad.

    As a Muslim I have to help my follow Muslim brothers and sisters who are suffering all over the world, and this could be the only way in which I can assist them. Upon collection of this funds, I will like you to use part of it to establish an Islamic organization to support Islam and its cause around the world.

    Due to the situation of things now, I advice you to Contact my lawyer Barrister Usman Dogo through this email: usmandogo@yahoo.co.uk for more details concerning the deposit of the funds.

    Regards
    Yours Faithfully in Islam
    Alhaji Dr. Usman Sudan.
