Default American Legion suspects it was targeted by IRS

Oh look, something else for Lois Lerner to take the fifth on.

I hope this isn't true. Would be a new layer of scumbagishness if it is.

American Legion suspects it was targeted by IRS | Fox News

Quote:
The American Legion is raising concerns about also being a victim of IRS targeting, prompting a Republican senator to demand answers from the agency.

The veterans’ service group says it recently learned about a so-called IRS “audit manual” that requires American Legion posts to keep dates of service and member records or perhaps face a $1,000-a-day fine, according to The Daily Caller.

The concerns follow revelations this spring that the IRS flagged Tea Party groups for additional auditing when they were seeking tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012.

The additional American Legion auditing appears to be the jurisdiction of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division, which oversaw the Tea Party flagging under Director Lois Lerner, who is now on paid administrative leave after invoking her Fifth Amendment rights during a congressional hearing on the issue.

Yes they have to keep records cause they f_cking sell beer and have dancing and pool tournaments LIKE A BAR.
They aren't TARGETED, fer cryin out loud, they are asked to keep records to maintain their TAX EXEMPT status.

I'd prefer to wait and see what comes of it before leaping to conclusions. Facts matter. If the IRS did nothing wrong then they have nothing to worry about. Time will tell if they targeted the American Legion or not.

Your article states they have "discovered" a manual that says they have to maintain service records of members or face a fine. I think that speaks plainly enough to the false claim they are making about the IRS, don't you?

As I said earlier, I wanna wait and see the entire story with all the facts before deciding for myself. Rushing to judgement usually isn't good. Nothing wrong with waiting and seeing what comes of this.

Nothing.
just like what came from the rest of the witch hunt. This is a dishonest politician trying to make points with his local news and constituency.

says so right there in the article if you read it. Nothing to wait and see about unless one wants to watch another faux show with poutrage over having to pay taxes.

From the article:

Quote:
American Legion lawyer Philip Onderdonk, Jr. told The Daily Caller the group is concerned that the manual attempts to amend statutes passed by Congress and approved by the president.

He also said American Legion members are scheduled to vote at their annual national convention this week on whether to further pursue the matter legally.

There goes your theory about it only being a Republican politician complaining.
