(CNSNews.com) - A timeline of Internal Revenue Service activities that was developed by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and provided to congressional staff indicates that early last year--as the nation was headed toward a presidential election--the IRS issued a "be on the lookout order" (BOLO) for officials in its "Determinations Unit" to ferret out for heightened scrutiny organizations applying for tax exempt status that were involved in educating Americans "on the Constitution and Bill of Rights."

The inspector general's timeline indicates that as early as March 2010 the IRS's "Determinations Unit" had begun targeting for special scrutiny organizations that used in their tax-exempt applications the words "Tea Party" or "Patriots."

The IG's timeline says that in March-April 2010: "The Determinations Unit began searching for other requests for tax exemption involving the Tea Party, Patriots, 9/12 and I.R.C. § 501©(4) applications involving political sounding names, e.g., 'We the People' or 'Take Back the Country.'"


In July 2010, according to the IG's timeline: "Determinations Unit management requested its specialists to be on the lookout for Tea Party applications."Scissors-32x32.png

The Taxman Cometh—For Obama’s Enemies


By Arnold Ahlert (Bio and Archives) Monday, May 13, 2013


On Friday, an Obama administration with an already appalling track record of scandals added an equally egregious revelation to the list. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) apologized for what they characterized as an “inappropriate” targeting of tax-exempt conservative organizations, whose names included “Tea Party” or “Patriot,” during the 2012 election campaign. Adding to severity of the debacle, the Washington Post reported Friday that the IRS division head “had no plans to release the information publicly, despite the confirmed wrongdoing.”


Unfortunately for the IRS, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups, offered up an unsolicited confession of the malfeasance during a Friday tax conference hosted by the American Bar Association. While calling it “wrong and “inappropriate,” Lerner contended that the conservative organizations singled out for additional scrutiny were not the victims of bias. “That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review,” she insisted. That statement stands in stark contrast to the reality that while a total of 300 groups were singled out Scissors-32x32.pnghttp://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/55147
