Levin: IRS Enforcement of Nonprofit Rules Requires Investigation

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, issued the following statement today after the IRS acknowledged it applied additional scrutiny to certain groups applying for nonprofit status:

"My subcommittee has been investigating the IRS's failure to enforce the law requiring that tax-exempt 501(c)4s be engaged exclusively in social welfare activities, not partisan politics. Today's announcement by the IRS raises a second issue: whether the IRS, to the extent it has enforced its rules, has been impartial in doing so. Both issues require investigation."
