The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has admitted to intentionally targeting conservative groups since at least 2011.
It has admitted that it searched tax applications for words like “Tea Party” and even “patriot.” Once it found those groups, it made intrusive and unconstitutional inquiries, demanding answers “upon penalty of perjury.”
IRS targets included pro-life and conservative groups in swing states before the 2012 election. This ongoing IRS abuse continues today, as the ACLJ represents dozens of these targeted groups. Using the government for partisan advantage violates a sacred trust.
President Obama and Members of the United States Congress,
The Internal Revenue Service cannot be used as a weapon against political enemies. There must be a thorough investigation of IRS abuse, and those responsible must be punished. There is no excuse for turning the full power of the IRS on American citizens.
We're taking on the unlimited resources of the Obama Administration in federal court to hold the abusive IRS accountable. Support our work.

President Obama’s Justice Department has just announced that it is closing the investigation into the IRS targeting scandal and that Lois Lerner will not face any criminal charges for her actions. What investigation? This faux investigation, conducted by one of President Obama’s top donors , was...
It’s a moral contradiction like no other. Bowe Bergdahl stands accused of deserting his post to cavort with the enemy. Sergeant Charles Martland stands accused of forcefully removing a child rapist from a U.S. military base in order to defend a child. Bergdahl was treated as a hero by the Obama...
