According to court documents filed by True the Vote, True the Vote’s application for tax-exempt status was filed with the IRS on July 15, 2010 and has been in a pending state since then.
True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said: “We’ve been waiting for three years to receive a decision from the IRS about our tax-exempt status.” Engelbrecht added: “After answering hundreds of questions and producing thousands of documents, we’re done waiting. The IRS does not have the power to pocket veto our application.”
According to Engelbrecht: “True the Vote is dedicated solely to promoting election integrity in our Republic.” “Our mission is to educate Americans on all of the rights they enjoy as voters. We do not pick winners and losers, but instead fortify the voting process so that it is fair and free.”
The lawsuit, True the Vote v. Internal Revenue Service, et al, was filed in United States District Court for the District of Columbia on May 21, 2013. True the Vote is represented by a team of attorneys from the ActRight Legal Foundation, a public-interest law firm providing services protecting freedom of speech and constitutional rights.
