Understanding California’s Lobbying Disclosure Laws
Nonprofits can safely, legally and effectively engage in state-level advocacy and lobbying work in California, but they need to understand what rules apply to their lobbying activities under California state law, in addition to federal tax law. This training is designed for all tax-exempt organizations doing work in the state of California. Participants will learn:
- When an organization (or its employees) should start filing California lobbying disclosure reports
- The definitions of activities that are considered “lobbying” under California state law and how those definitions differ from IRS lobbying definitions; and
- The restrictions on organizations or individuals that lobby in California.
