The Other Shoe Drops - Republican Senators Urge IRS Not to Be Political When Examining 501(c)(4)s
Led by Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, a dozen Republican Senators urged the IRS to ensure that its treatment of section 501(c)(4) organizations is both based in law and fair across the political spectrum. Unlike the letter two days earlier from Democratic Senators on the same topic, which urged the IRS to make specific changes to its rules and practices relating to 501(c)(4)s, the Republican Senators instead asked the IRS to respond to specific questions relating to the exemption application process for 501(c)(4)s. The questions are tied to the complaints by various Tea Party groups that the IRS has singled them out for unduly burdensome questions relating to their 501(c)(4) applications.
