State Lawmakers Hold Hearings On IRS Scandal

Jul 12, 2013

The Ohio House Policy and Legislative Oversight committee wants to hear from people who believe they were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service because of their political beliefs.

The committee will hold a hearing on July 25th at the University of Cincinnati. Public comments will be submitted to Ohio's congressional delegation. An IRS Cincinnati office played a key role in what agency officials have said was improper scrutiny of tea party and other conservative groups when they sought tax-exempt status. IRS employees have denied partisan motives.
