I'm sorry, but you're not talking to the cops here - who are corrupt and will twist what you say to convict you - you're talking to Congress, which although also corrupt, will just twist what you say to score political points but not to put you in jail, so there is no Earthly reason to take the Fifth in front of Congress unless you have, in fact, broken the law.
That isn't to say that she shouldn't take the Fifth - by all means, it's her Constitutional right so she should use it freely; however, as far as measuring what was going on inside the IRS, the fact she's going to take the Fifth tells us volumes. That means we now have confirmation that the IRS attack on conservative tea-party related groups was managed at high levels and was not just the work of some off-the-rez low-level, front-line employees in Cincinnati.
