IRS persists in targeting Americans for their political beliefs
Filings released Wednesday show authorities at the Internal Revenue Service continue to target Americans for their political persuasions using the same criteria used to home in on conservative tea-party groups across the country.
At least three tea party groups are still awaiting approval from the IRS more than three years after agents publicly admitted they’d asked inappropriate questions and put the groups through unreasonable delays in obtaining tax-exempt status.
Last month the IRS told both Congress and a federal judge that it would start processing the outstanding applications — but the agency has refused to say how or when, leaving the groups themselves struggling to make sense of things.
Making matters ever more difficult, the IRS specifically refused in court papers to reject further use of the criteria it used to single out tea party and conservative groups in the first place.
