Time is of the essence as the just-introduced House tax reform bill is moving quickly through the House.  The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (H.R. 1) is being worked on this week by the House Tax Committee Representative George Holding (R-NC) is a member of that committee. You can reach Representative Holding's office at 202-225-3032.

Today is the last day for nonprofits to voice their concerns about the tax reform bill. 

Easterseals UCP urges you to call Representative Holding TODAY and tell him not to undermine the work of charitable nonprofits through tax reform.

Again, call Representative Holding's office TODAY at 202-225-3032.

Please deliver this simple message:  

"The House tax bill would be harmful to charitable nonprofits. It is important that the House do two things to help fix it: 1) strike the Johnson Amendment language at Section 5201 from the bill, and 2) add a universal deduction for charitable contributions to give a tax incentive to all Americans to give back to their communities. Thank you!"


Here's a nonprofit summary and a detailed article on what's in the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (H.R. 1), but the two big-ticket issues we are asking you to call about are these:
