More IRS Offices Involved in Abuses

By Matthew Clark1368548508000

The IRS in issuing its so-called apology for intentionally targeting conservative groups for onerous and unconstitutional inquiries said that the targeting was limited to “low-level” IRS agents in a single Cincinnati office.

However, this does not square with the facts.  The ACLJ represented 27 of these targeted conservative groups.  Our targeted clients have received inquiry demand letters from IRS offices coast to coast.

Below are a few of the letters targeted conservative groups received from the infamous Cincinnati IRS office, two IRS offices in California, and the main IRS headquarters in Washington, DC.  These letters range from 2010 to three targeted inquiry letters received in 2012, well after senior IRS officials were aware of the illegal targeting.

Many of these letters demanded unconstitutionally intrusive information from conservative groups, including donor lists, member resumes, and more.  Here are some examples of actual questions our clients received from the IRS.

We have also documented how this intentional, admittedly inappropriate targeting of conservative groups is still ongoing to this day.  We have sent a letter to the IRS demanding that it immediately cease this abuse of power and grant the tax-exempt status of 10 of our clients whose tax-exempt status is still held up in this targeted inquiry process.

Road Block in the Way of Justice

By Matthew Clark1414174262103

The fight for justice is never the easy road, and it doesn’t always win the first round. Yesterday a federal district court dismissed two lawsuits (at least a majority of the claims) brought on behalf of conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS. Unfortunately, the court’s ruling is based on...
