Two appropriations bills that would fund the government for the 2020 fiscal year are pending consideration in the U.S. Senate.
One measure would modify the rules for determining tax-exempt status of certain mutual or cooperative telephone or electric companies. The legislation includes a provision that would allow mutual or cooperative telephone or electric companies to not take into account as income certain government grants when applying the requirement under section 501(c)(12) that 85% or more of income consists of amounts collected from members.
The U.S. House of Representatives on December 17, 2019, approved the bills. Read TaxNewsFlash for more information about the bills.
