  •  Well, there are some safe harbors. (0+ / 0-)

    Case law indicates 10% is totally fine, and if the charity made its 503(n) (IIRC) election, then there's a statutory "safe harbor" that's in the 10-15% ballpark. (I used to audit charities, but it's been a while so I'm a little rusty).  Churches can't make the 503(n) election, but it'd be tough to see the IRS or a court punishing a church for making an identical % of advocacy expenditures that a non-religious charity could.
