Since IRS does NOT give out the info obtained on these non-profits (which they DID NOT “target” by the way) to just anyone, I see no problem. Unless of course you are hiding something. If someone does not want anyone finding out they fund a certain organization I think that organization is probably shady. I’m not embarrassed by what I donate to, and I wouldn’t care if I was listed as a member. Only those doing something wrong should want to stop others from this disclosure. The IRS does not need more forms to process and maintain, so this is likely why they want to get rid of this schedule. I feel it is needed however. Let’s try to make non-profits honest. Keep the schedule-perhaps file it with another agency, and keep it on file and available if the public wants to know who is buying what influence.
