Have you had any interaction with the "Oscar Ichazo Foundation", which is ostensibly a religious foundation but is more probably a tax avoidance device which is run by and in conjunction with Arica Institute Inc. for the personal benefit of Oscar Ichazo.
If you have concerns about how the "Oscar Ichazo Foundation" is run or specific information that leads you to believe that it is in violation of US Tax Law, for example if you have been solicited for donations to buy paintings made by an Arica artist as a birthday present for Ichazo, please contact the email address below or file a complaint directly with the United States Internal Revenue Service:
