Federal Lobbying Rules

Congress adopted the Lobbying Disclosure Act which defines lobbying and reporting requirements for registered lobbyists differently from the IRS regulations for charitable organizations. 

You must register if you reach a threshold for time and funds spent on lobbying a federal official.  The LDA is a reporting law, and does not set limits on lobbying activities or expenses, which is still covered by IRS rules.
