The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration today released Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review (2013-10-053):
Early in Calendar Year 2010, the IRS began using inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status to review for indications of significant political campaign intervention. Although the IRS has taken some action, it will need to do more so that the public has reasonable assurance that applications are processed without unreasonable delay in a fair and impartial manner in the future.
