(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- The Tennessee local chapter of a national Muslim civil rights group was given tax-exempt status, according to The Tennessean.
The Washington, D.C.-based Council of American Islamic Relations lost tax-exempt status last year because they did not properly file tax returns for three consecutive years.
On Thursday, CAIR confirms that the Internal Revenue have reinstated their tax-exempt status.
The Middle Tennessee chapter of CAIR is an active part of the community in recent years.
