Rep. John Lewis on IRS Problems


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. John Lewis made this statement today about the turmoil confronting the IRS:

"I am deeply disturbed by the findings in the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration's report that the Internal Revenue Service used inappropriate criteria to scrutinize tax-exempt applications.

"The Internal Revenue Code must be enforced in a fair and unbiased manner, which does include close regulation of all 501(c)(4) organizations to ensure that their activities are not primarily political and contribute to our social welfare. I look forward to the full implementation of the Treasury Inspector General's recommendations to improve the IRS Exempt Organizations Office and to the conclusions of any inquiries into this matter.

"The American people deserve and require the highest level of ethical integrity from their government, and I believe the IRS is capable of achieving that standard."
