Schedule which reports lobbying and political activity, also used 990 -EZ filers. And the
990-EZs are also imaged. created list (from RICS) TY2008 990s that claimed 501(c)(4)s their returns,
answered yes either the question about political campaign activities the proxy tax question, and
attached Schedule about 550 organizations. could something similar the 990-EZ. also collected these 990s from the Foundation Center website. don know what you
would consider adequate sample, how you plan give the files DOJ. There are some
practical issues with putting them DVD here.
