A congressional committee is currently reviewing the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) response to lawmakers’ concerns following new revelations that the scandal-plagued agency is targeting the veterans organization the American Legion.
The House Committee on Veterans Affairs last week requested that the IRS respond to complaints about its “unduly burdensome and completely unwarranted” requirements for American Legion posts. The Committee gave the IRS a September 3 deadline to respond to complaints.
As The Daily Caller first reported, the IRS is targeting the American Legion with a new set of auditing guidelines and penalties, designed in January 2011 while the IRS was admittedly targeting conservative groups with improper audits.
The IRS now requires American Legion posts to maintain dates of service and character of service records for all members… The penalty for not having the required proof of eligibility is, apparently, $1,000 per day,” the American Legion stated.http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/05/congressional-committee-demanding-answers-from-irs-over-veteran-targeting/
Obama, The Justice Department and the IRS are destroying our way of life on a daily basis and the only thing being done about it are a few "endless congressional meetings"
