ANS: E These characteristics tend to permeate the definitional requirements of many types of exempt organizations. PTS: 1 REF: p. 23-5 6. Garden, Inc., a qualifying § 501(c)(3) organization, incurs lobbying expenditures of $210,000 during the taxable year. Exempt purpose expenditures are $900,000. If Garden makes the election under § 501(h) to make lobbying expenditures on a limited basis, its tax liability resulting from the lobbying expenditures is: a. $0. b. $12,500. c. $50,000. d. $60,000. e. None of the above. ANS: B The lobbying nontaxable amount is $160,000 [($500,000 × 20%) + ($400,000 × 15%)]. Therefore, the ceiling on lobbying expenditures is $240,000 ($160,000 × 150%). Since Garden did not exceed the ceiling, the tax imposed is only on the amount of the lobbying expenditures in excess of $160,000 ($210,000 – $160,000 = $50,000). The tax is imposed at a rate of 25%. Thus, the tax liability is $12,500 ($50,000 × 25%). PTS: 1 REF: p. 23-8 | p. 23-9 | Figure 23-1 7. Which of the following statements is correct? a. Exempt organizations cannot engage in significant levels of lobbying activities. b. Certain exempt organizations can elect to engage in lobbying activities on a limited basis. c.
