IRS Rules Concerning Congregations and Elections

UUs are taking an exceptionally great interest in the upcoming US presidential election.  I sense that this is not only because of excitement about the candidates.  It is also because the election has raised so many larger issues of race, gender, and the proper role of religion in politics.  This election season has also brought many questions about just what congregations can do regarding the election without running afoul of the rules regarding their tax exempt status.  The UU Washington Office has just put out a newly revised resource addressing these questions:  http://www.uua.org/leaders/leaderslibrary/realrules/107991.shtml
