Iowa 527 Committees (Non-Express Advocacy)


527 groups on this page are tax-exempt organizations that do not make campaign contributions to Iowa committees but do engage in activities such as issue advocacy ads that promote or criticize a candidate's voting record but do not expressly advocate for or against candidates.  Such activities do not trigger Iowa's campaign laws except for Iowa Code section 68A.401A.  That law requires certain 527 committees to file copies of IRS reports. To satisfy this filing requirement the Board will link to the appropriate IRS Web pages.


Federal law requires some campaign committees to also register as 527 committees. This page is for non-express advocacy 527 committees only.

This is the current list of Iowa 527 Committees that are not campaign committees.
