The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation was removed Tuesday from the watch list of Charity Navigator, after the watchdog group reviewed the foundation's tax records for the past four years.

The Clinton Foundation "provided publicly accessible information regarding their amended tax forms for 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013," Charity Navigator said on Tuesday, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

"This information, along with the public memorandum submitted addressing the other issues raised in the watch list entry, meets our requirements for removal."

The Clinton Foundation was placed on the list on March 14 after a wave of negative media stories.

But the foundation's "archived watch list information" detailing any issues and how they were addressed would remain on Charity Navigator's website for a year, said Lindsey Struck of the watchdog's donor advisory issuance committee.

Thereafter, "assuming nothing else comes up that is cause for re-examination, it will fall away," she told the Chronicle.

More than a month ago, the Clinton Foundation filed its 2014 Form 990, as well as amended returns for those previous years, with the IRS.

Charity Navigator added the Clinton Foundation to its list after news reports raised questions about whether donations to the charity were used by foreign governments and corporations to gain favor with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

There has been no evidence that Foundation donors gained any benefit with the State Department during Clinton's tenure.

Also, the American Institute of Philanthropy's Charity Watch, a respected non-profit monitor, gave the Clinton Foundation an "A" for its financial performance in 2015.

According to its website, the Clinton Foundation has for 14 years "convened businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for girls and women, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change."

Clinton resigned from the foundation's board in April after announcing her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination.
