[organization name] joins in the comments submitted December 15 by the nonprofit community in opposition to the proposed Gift Substantiation Regulation (IRS REG-138344-13) and urges Treasury and the IRS to withdraw the proposed rule. We share the concerns of many that the proposed regulation would expose the public to increased risk from identity theft, impose significant costs and burdens on nonprofit organizations, and create public confusion and disincentives for donors to support the work of nonprofits.
