Tuesday evening we reported the Republican National Committee issued a formal complaint with the IRS and sent a letter to Commissioner John Koskinen demanding an investigation into the accuracy of the Clinton Health Access Initiative (I refuse to call it chai) filings, especially focusing on the proper accounting of government grants, including from foreign governments.
An April 2015 Reuters story reported that Clinton Health Access Initiative spokeswoman Maura Daley conceded that the nonprofit organization made errors reporting the amounts of government grants on its 2012 and 2013 tax filings and said the group planned to refile those returns with the Internal Revenue Service.
However, in a recent exchange with POLITICO, Daley denied the initiative ever committed to refiling and said no revised forms are being prepared.
On Wednesday the Clinton Foundation changed its mind. As reported by Politico
An organization related to the Clinton Foundation has again reversed itself on fixing errors on its federal tax filings and now says it plans to submitted amended returns.
Clinton Health Access Initiative spokeswoman Maura Daley said Wednesday that the group has now decided to refile two years worth of forms with the Internal Revenue Service.
“As previously stated, the minor errors on the 2012 and 2013 CHAI 990s are immaterial and do not require refiling, yet in response to recent media interest in the forms, CHAI has decided to refile the returns in order to be fully transparent,” Daley said in a statement emailed to POLITICO.
In other words, because the RNC demanded an IRS audit, they decided to change their mind, I would suggest that the RNC keep the pressure on—just to insure the Clinton Health Access Initiative files an accurate return .
