Here’s How the IRS Can Still Technically Target Conservative Groups

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

It’s been proven that the IRS disproportionately targeted conservative groups for excessive scrutiny on their non-profit statuses, and that Lois Lerner’s team used conservative donor lists to select audit subjects.

The question has always been: What is the government going to do to stop it, and what are they going to do to make sure it never happens again?

The Washington Examiner reports: 

Internal Revenue Service procedures for selecting nonprofit groups to be audited are filled with holes that could allow the tax agency to discriminate against certain organizations, a new report shows.

The findings suggest IRS officials could single out groups “in an unfair manner … based on an organization’s religious, educational, political, or other views,” said the Government Accountability Report, an advance copy of which was provided to the Washington Examiner.

Rep. Peter Roskam, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s oversight subcommittee, said the report “exposes a new and more egregious frontier of potential targeting” in the way the IRS chooses nonprofit groups to be audited.

“It turns out that, even in the wake of the Lois Lerner scandal, the IRS has failed to take the steps necessary to ensure all taxpayers are treated fairly and equally,” Roskam told the Examiner.

We need to make sure that our representatives hold the IRS accountable for its clear abuses of power. We repeat: What are they going to do to make sure this never happens again? The federal government still owes us an answer.
