Re: Christian Community Benevolent Association, Inc. violated its 501(c)(3) status by repeatedly participating in a political campaign

Dear Sir or Madam:

I respectfully submit IRS Form 13909, Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form, to report that Christian Community Benevolent Association, ("Benevolent Assoc."), a 501(c)(3) organization, has engaged in political campaigning by allowing New York State Senator Ruben Diaz to park his fleet of seven campaign vans and trucks at its property located at 1435-37 Longfellow Avenue, in Bronx County, New York. Although the fleet is supposedly kept at the Senator/Reverend's Christian Community Neighborhood Church, (hereinafter referred to as "Church") the true owner of the property is the BENEVOLENT ASSOC. As such, the BENEVOLENT ASSOC. has violated one of the fundamental requirements of maintaining its not-for-profit status - - "it is absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in or intervening in any political campaign.")

By way of background, on or about January 18, 1989, the City of New York sold the property located at 1435-37 Longfellow Avenue, in Bronx County, New York to BENEVOLENT ASSOC. (See attached Deed/.) Although a 2008 audit reveals that the BENEVOLENT ASSOC. and CHURCH are affiliated, there are no other deeds or property recordings relating to this property ever being sold to the CHURCH or any other entity. (See attached 2008 Tax Returns and Audit). In fact, on or around May 27, 2005, BENEVOLENT ASSOC. obtained a $200,000 mortgage on the Longfellow property to make repairs on the CHURCH, using the property as collateral. (See attached Mortgage Recording, ID 2005060101324001.) Thus, BENEVOLENT ASSOC., a 501(c)(3) organization, is the true owner of the property.

1 Glenn Blain, Tax Tiff over State Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. 's campaign cars at church, New York Daily News, August 24,2010.

2lnterestingly, the Deed itself was sold with the following restrictions: "Use of this property is limited in perpetuity to those not-for-profit uses allowable pursuant to the New York State Not-for-Profit Corporation Law and/or Section 50 1 (c) of the United States Internal Revenue Code." By violating the deed itself, the City of New York may also have legal recourse against BENEVOLENT ASSOC ..

On or about August 23, 2010, the New York Daily News reported that State Senator Ruben Diaz has "shelled out thousands of dollars in campaign cash to outfit a fleet of seven vans and trucks that he says routinely prowls the streets of this district blaring music and the 'Vote for Diaz' message." (See attached articles.) In these articles, State Senator admits that the ''vehicles are registered to him or his wife, ... and used exclusively for campaigning." "The vans and trucks ... are kept at Diaz's Christian Community Neighborhood Church," which is located at 1437 Longfellow Avenue, the property of BENEVOLENT ASSOC., a 50 1 (c)(3) organization.

Although Senator Diaz states in one article that there is nothing improper about parking the vehicles at the church, the IRS code on 501 (c)(3) status is clear. Title 26, Section 501 states, in pertinent part, that "an organization ... shall be exempt from taxation ... " if it is a "corporationl] ... organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable ... or educational purposes, ... which does not participate in, or intervene in ... any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office." (Emphasis added.) Senator Diaz admits that his fleet of vans is used exclusively for campaigning. By allowing Senator Diaz to park his fleet of campaign vehicles on its property, the BENEVOLENT ASSOC. has violated the IRS code and its tax exempt status should be revoked.

I hope that the Internal Revenue Service investigates this clear violation of the IRS Code.

Such a flagrant violation of the IRS code should not be condoned.

An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Christian Community Benevolent Association, Inc. as of June 30, 2009, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Notes to Financial Statements

1. Organization

Christian Community Benevolent Association, Inc. (the Association), was organized as a not-for-profit corporation under the laws of the State of New York and is exempt from Income Tax under IRS Code SOI(c)(3). The Association is engaged in services to the community.

The Association is affiliated with the Christian Community Neighborhood Church (the Church) and the Bronx Hispanic Clergy Organization (the Clergy).

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Classes of Net Assets

The financial statements report amounts separately by class of net assets. Unrestricted amounts are those currently available for use by the Association. Temporarily restricted amounts are those which are stipulated by donors for specific operating purposes. When a donor restriction expires, that is, when a stipulated time restriction and/or purpose restriction is accomplished, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets and reported in the statement of activities as net assets released from restrictions.

Contributions

All contributions are considered available for unr.estricted use, unless specifically restricted by the donor or subject to other legal restrictions. Marketable securities and property contributed are recorded at fair value at the date of contribution.

Property and Equipment

The Association follows the practice of capitalizing all expenditures for property and equipment which exceed $1,000 and have a useful life of at least three years.

Property and equipment are reflected at cost, if purchased, and at fair value at date of donation, if donated. Depreciation is recognized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of such assets which range from 3 to 27.S years.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

In-kind Services and Materials

Contributions of services are recognized in the statement of activities if the services create or enhance nonfinancial assets or require specialized skills, are provided by individuals possessing those skills and would typically need to be purchased if not provided by donation. The Association reports such contributions at their estimated fair value when received.

Advertising

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred.

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

The Association has deferred adoption of F ASB guidance on accounting for uncertain income taxes until the date of its June 2010 financial statements. Management of the Association is not aware of any violation of its tax status as an organization exempt for income taxes, nor of any exposure to unrelated business income tax. Consequently, in the opinion of management, adoption of FIN 48 should not have a significant effect on the Association. The Association's accounting policy is to provide liabilities for uncertain tax positions when a liability is probable and estimable.

Functional Allocation of Expenses

The costs of providing services have been summarized on a functional basis. Accordingly, certain costs have been allocated among the programs and supporting services benefitted.

Subsequent Events Evaluation by Management

Management has evaluated subsequent events for disclosure andlor recognition in the financial statements through the date that the financial statements were available to be issued, which date is November 13, 2009.

State Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. shelling out thousands for fleet of 'Vote for Diaz' vehicles

Diaz has shelled out thousands of dollars in campaign cash to outfit a fleet of seven vans and trucks that he says routinely prowls the streets of his district hlaring music and the "Vote for Diaz" messag.e.

DAILY NEWS ALBANY BUREAU

"They are beautiful," boasted Diaz, who faces a Sept 14 Democratic primary against upstart community orqanizer Carlos (Charlie) Ramos.

Monday, August 23rd 2010,4:00 AM

While it's not uncommon for lawmakers to use campaign money to pay for cars, Diaz's automotive expenses are striking:. The vehicles, some more than 10 years old, are costing Diaz big bucks to keep on the road.

'Recent carnpaiqn filings show Diaz has spent more than $7,500 on automobile insurance payments, nearly $4,000 for reqistrations and inspections, and more than $5,340 on repairs and parts this year.

Research Group said he does not object to Diaz's automotive spending as long as the vans and trucks are used exclusively for campaigning.

Too many elected officials, Horner said, use campaign dollars simply to pay for the cars they use every day.

State Senate President Malcolm Smith (0- Queens) and Assembly Majori,ty Whip Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) are among the many lawmakers who use campaign money to make car payments, campaign records show.

Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) even used campaign cash to pay a $40 parking ticket from the city of Albany.

"In terms of the law, you can do whatever you want," Horner said. "That's the crazy thing. We don't think that they should be used for anything other than campaigning."

Diaz, a Pentecostal minister, said the vehicles are registered to him or his wife, Leslie Yvette Diaz, and used exclusively for campaigning. Diaz's vans also were used to aid ousted Sen. Hiram Monserrate in his unsuccessful bid to win back his Senate seat in a March special election, records

show.

The vans and trucks - each painted white with red lettering - are kept at Diaz's Christian Community Neighborhood Church. On evenings and weekends, they head out in caravans to alert voters to the pending primary.

"I am the master of street campaigning," Diaz said. "I do street campaigning the way we used to do it in [Puerto Rico]."

Ramos shrugged off Diaz's caravan as little more than "street theater."

"It doesn't get you elected," Ramos said. "We want to go talk to the voters - doorto-door - and that's the campaign we are going to be rurminq."

Ramos, a former aide to ex-city Controller William Thompson, has portrayed Diaz as a fixture in Albany's broken political culture. His campaign is backed by several gayrights organizations.

ALBANY - Bronx state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. 's campaign cars may be a taxing issue for his church.

Critics also question whether Diaz uses the vehicles - some of which are more than 10 years old - for personal or church-related activities, especially in noncampaign years.

"W,hy doesn't he just rent the vehicles for campaign season?" asked one Democratic lawmaker.

Diaz, who insists the vehicles are used exclusively for campaigning, said there was nothing improper about parking the vehicles at his church.

'This is part of the way it is," Diaz said. "The vehicles are my vehicles."
