Trump retweeted @JudicialWatch today. JW clogs the courts with conspiracy theories. @TomFitton is president of Judicial Watch, classified by the IRS as a #nonprofit. Judicial Watch pays no income tax on reported income of $127 million. Fitton makes $334K a year to shill for Trump
Here are salaries for Judicial Watch executives. They pay themselves to clog the court system with conspiracy theories on Trump's behalf. IRS tax docs here:

Selected excerpts from #AB1712 @BuffyWicks analysis: #DAFs: "a donor-advised fund is a form of charitable giving whereby a donor makes a charitable contribution to a fund that is managed by a fund sponsor." /1
"While the assets in the fund are technically no longer controlled by the donor, typically, the fund sponsor permits the donor to direct the sponsor’s charitable giving activities originating with the assets in the fund." #AB1712 /2

Wondering what’s happening with #socialassistance reform in Ontario?

Here’s a new report from @maytree_canada on Service Transformation in Ontario Works.

It's lengthy, so I’ve tried to capture the threads with, well, this thread🧵. #onpoli

maytree.com/publications/s…
Though the gov repealed some of its early decisions on income support, there are significant changes underway on the service delivery side, in particular changes to the employment and skills training offered to #OntarioWorks recipients that we need to pay attention to.
The paper explores what these changes are, whether they address the root causes leading people living in #poverty to need support from OW, how other countries fared when undertaking similar reforms (spoiler alert: not great), & things that @ONgov will need to consider.

Here is a social experiment.

Will I be reported to @Twitter for using offensive and demeaning language if I use -- correctly -- the word "#niggardly" -- in a sentence?

The Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the tax assessor's approach as a niggardly construction of the statute.
I've been reviewing decisions of the #HawaiiSupremeCourt on the question of whether #nonprofits were properly charged a #generalexcise #tax under Hawaiian law for various activities and operations that produced #income to the organization.
Courts begin (and end) their principal analysis of such issues by examining an underlying tax law, code, rule, or regulation.

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists
3} My dog #Sadie is a very #Active #Dreamer. Hitler #Dreamed about ruling an #AryanPlanet.

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky
