MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Federal tax investigators are looking into former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler's charity work.
Gannett Wisconsin Media reports (http://gbpg.net/1bFoiSB ) the IRS is probing why Butler has been raising money in Wisconsin over the last decade but has made only one annual filing with the agency.
The LeRoy Butler Foundation hasn't filed with the IRS since 2002, even though he continued raising money under that name through this year.
A second charity, the LeRoy Butler Scholarship Fund, was founded in 2009 but had its tax-exempt status revoked by the IRS after failing to file returns by 2012. The only return on file from Butler since 2002 is a short-form 2011 filing for the scholarship fund submitted after the revocation.
Gannett Wisconsin Media reports Butler didn't respond to an email inquiry.
