The Internal Revenue Service wrote to the Richmond Tea Party last year demanding to know the names of all its financial donors and volunteers, as part of a 55-question inquisition into its application for tax-exempt status, MailOnline has learned.
The agency wanted to know ‘the names of the donors, contributors, and grantors’ for every year ‘from inception to the present.’
It also demanded ‘the amounts of each of the donations, contributions, and grants and the dates you received them.’
‘How did you use these donations, contributions, and grants?’ the IRS asked. ‘Provide the details.’
And in addition to the names of board members, officers and employees, the nation’s taxing authorities insisted on knowing the names of everyone who helped the Richmond Tea Party without compensation.
‘Please identify your volunteers,’ the January 9, 2012 letter from the IRS read.
The agency also required the Virginia conservative group to provide copies of sections of its website that only its members can access.
The IRS came under fire on Friday when its Office of Inspector General released a draft of an investigative timeline showing that the agency had played political favorites with nonprofit groups seeking tax-exempt status.
In 2010, according to that investigation, the Cincinnati-based IRS office responsible for vetting tax-exempt applications began targeting groups with ‘Tea Party or similar’ words in their names – including words like ‘patriots’ and ‘9/12’ – for tighter scrutiny.
article-2323978-19C2D54C000005DC-443_636x271The Richmond Tea Party received this demand along with dozens of others from the IRS, asking for a list of its donors and the amounts they had contributed. The group refused, citing their donors’ right to privacy
The IRS ultimately identified approximately 300 such organizations, many of which were independently organized in 2009 and 2010 under the larger ‘tea party’ banner. Those groups had a decisive impact in the 2010 midterm congressional elections, and became a thorn in the side of the Democratic party, costing it race after race, especially in the House of Representatives, which shifted to Republican control.
In the nearly three years since the IRS began looking more closely at conservative nonprofit groups than others, 125 of the 300 target organizations have been approved for tax-exempt status. Another 25 withdrew their applications. The remainder are still waiting.
The Office of Inspector General’s timeline shows that in Washington, senior officials with the IRS were made aware of the practice by at least August 4, 2011. On that date, the chief counsel of the IRS met with the agency’s Rulings and Agreements unit ‘so that everyone would have the latest information on the issue.’
But during a press gaggle about Air Force One on Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted the White House was unaware of the investigation or its political implications until last month.

  1. My only question is where the hell is Congress? This is not new, but it sure is getting old.

  2. My God! Already, I would:
    A) Request a definition of the non-word “literatures” as it applies to your collective IQ’s, and please divide the IQ’s up, for each member who has ever even pretended to look at this letter, up to 100% of their IQ’s. (If any IQ can be found. I think Office Max sells some, if i’m not mistaken.)
    B) Please provide us an explanation for every breath you have taken SINCE 201. (!!!) Activities, publications, etc., and please ignore that there are (2) “b)” ‘s and no “c)” Also, you MUST scour Facebook, LinkedIn, and any other social networking forum out there (we dont know them all)to find all the “me too” comments going all the way back to Oct22,201 and you MUST remember every forun you, or any employee, volunteer or person simply passing by your fuction EVER wrote in or on, (we can’t decide which word is correct) in order to have thsi application accepted.
    I.E. Question
    (5) Provide the following information for your web and internet related activities:
    a) Copies of your current web pages and your presentations on other web pages such as social networking sites and blog sites (from October 22,201 to now). lf you are a membership organization, please include all the pages that are accessible only to your members.
    b) Expense amounts incurred for your web and internet related activities from October 22,201 to now.)
    b) lndicate the percentage of time and resources you spend on these activities in relation to 100% of all your activities. (Also please INDICATE why we cannot spell “indicate”. Use full sentences and back-list it until the year 201.)
    C) On Question #4 please explain why we listed a, b, c and then h. Again yous full sentences and include information and activities not involved with and of your members yet, but dreamed about once when you were 7 years old. Also, please explain why “yous” does not show up as misspelled even though it is. This is of the utmost impotance.
    D) As regards Question 7
    7) Have you engaged or will you engage in business dealings with any candidate(s) for public office or an organization associated with the candidate, such as renting office space or providing access to a membership list (in the near future)?
    We’re working off Larry’s desk in the basement and running to CopyQuik for all publication of dubious nature and misppelled glaring mistakes. We’re trusting Henry to know how to mangle the Constituttion and every law ever written to protect us and Lydia is providing coffee and donuts as well as break time “entertainment”… he he he Oh1 Was I supposed to write that below. Does that mean I have to fill out a hole new from?
    lf so, describe the relationship in detail and copies of any contracts or other agreements documenting the business relationship. (Include all salacious and dirty details so that we may laugh over them, Xerox them for our bulletin boards and pass them around in our email.)
    The foregoing has been supplied for your amusment, amazement and just downright appaling aggravation. All misspelling accident, yet intentional and stupidity included free of charge. However I do believe the volunteer of this information has forgotten her name and is not likely to remember it anytime soon. Will this delay our application?

    • Christine, now that I have cleaned the ice tea I just spewed off of laptop may I say that is about the funniest thing I have ever read..LOL
      And I think you could get a job with the IRS no problem. Just print that and use as a Resume. Bravo,

      • Thank you dear, you have SO made my day! B) Written while “giggling tired”. Certainly NOT complaining, but I’ve had several evenings where I’ve gotten so silly writing responses and stuff. This was one of them. Glad you enjoyed!
        (Of course, this really WAS “self-silly-ing”, except for the group who has to fill all this out – must be a NIGHTMARE. Back to 2010??? Who KEEPS those detailed kinds of records when you’re a “mostly” or “all”, volunteer group??? Some groups I’ve belonged to wouldn’t remember the DATES of the events, much less find a copy of the speeches and every social networking site ever even commented on by the GUESTS, by the sounds!) Disgusting…

  3. I’ll bet the Communist Party of the US was never asked these invasive questions.

  4. Love the picture with the ducktaped guy with cap. Steven, that you? :o)

  5. Humor in all of this Obama (Chicago Gang) illegal activities is that it was AP who was pro-Obama during their 2012 presidential reporting and now Obama is spying on them.
    So, we will soon see the IRS spying on pro-Obama groups that supported him and they will also be thrown under the bus.

  6. Isn’t the IRS a private company headquarted in Puerto Rico? Perhaps they are looking for ways of raising more money themselves, and another thing, maybe they need volunteers to help them out too, there’s all that work looming ahead with the managing of Obamacare.
    Perhaps they have so many rules to comply with as a result of the new laws that have been implemented that they are seriously understaffed and all the tax money they take in has already been spent on bottles of rum, which makes it hard for them to offer jobs to tax collectors that are worth while……………………………
    noone is interested in helping them investigate Billy Graham or anyone else in the Tea Party for that matter, and the people who have beaucoup bucks will not appear on the audit threatening list they will just be small fry who are not politically important. There are enough of these who would not like to be audited who might be thinking of changing their position on the Benghazi investigation so that they can become exempt from this.
    Microsoft is said to have written a program that shows if someone is making donations to a Christian organization and also purchased a firearm, that triggers off the IRS.
    God is more interested in the widow who gave her little mite and in the sword of the Lord and Gideon.
