Congress Asks Organizations Targeted by the IRS to Come Forward and Tell Their Story

May 23, 2013

In yesterday's House hearing, the Treasury Inspector-General was asked if he could list which organizations had been targeted by the IRS for delayed approval or harassing questions. He replied that he could not make that information public, due to privacy laws. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) noted that if the groups came forward voluntarily, however, their stories could be told.

As a result, the House Ways & Means Committee has posted a webpage where targeted groups can reach out to the committee to have their experiences heard, possibly in future hearings. Groups can choose to have their information disclosed only to committee staff or also to the general public.
