Former IRS Commissioner Regrets Targeting Tea Party Groups

Submitted by admin on Thu, 5/30/2013 - 12:00 am

Former IRS commissioner, Douglas Shulman, spoke publicly before the Senate Banking Committee.  The topic was regarding the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups’ applications for non-profit status, last week.

Shulman stated that he was “dismayed” and “saddened” to learn that IRS employees had singled out small-government groups for tougher scrutiny. “The IRS must administer, and it must be perceived to administer, our tax laws fairly and impartially,” said Shulman, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, and resigned from the IRS in November 2012.
