Oregon Cracks Down on Phony Charities


Phony charities may lose their tax-deductible status if Oregon Attorney General John Kroger gets his way. Kroger says it's time to clamp down: “We’ve seen an explosion of charities in Oregon that raise money, supposedly raise money for good causes like protecting veterans, protecting law enforcement and then stick most of the money in their own pockets.” Kroger is lobbying the Legislature for a law requiring a minimum of 30% of the proceeds to go to the actual cause, or else the charity would no longer be tax deductible.
