IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has promised that the IRS will not change the standards it applies to religious tax-exempt organizations because of the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling.
Koskinen gave written assurance to Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt in response to Pruitt’s inquiry into whether non-profit religious institutions would be denied tax-exempt status in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.
Pruitt had written to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen about concerns that charities, churches, and religiously affiliated universities may be targeted for denial of their tax-exempt status based on comments by the U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli during oral arguments for Obergefell v.Hodges.
