Posted on 05/17/2013 8:07:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Treasury has not one, but at least two departments tasked with keeping an eye on the IRS. Weve heard from Treasurys Inspector General already in his report released this week. Now, the IRS Oversight Board has chimed in. The Oversight Board is a nine-member independent body charged to oversee the IRS in its administration, management, conduct, direction, and supervision of the execution and application of the internal revenue laws. The Secretary of Treasury and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue are members of the Board.
Today the IRS Oversight Board released this statement:
The IRS Oversight Board is deeply troubled by IRS conduct described in the May 14 Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report1. This behavior by a few individuals does a great disservice to the vast majority of IRS employees who discharge their duties within the letter and spirit of the law.
The use of inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status indicates, in the Boards opinion, a breakdown in the business processing system of the IRS. This breakdown erodes taxpayers faith in the integrity and fairness of that system and our public institutions at large. Moreover, during the reported timeline, IRS leadership never informed the Board of the change in its new criteria, although there were regular opportunities to properly brief the Board on this matter.....

What is the appeals process for the heavy handed profiling cases?
if you cant dazzle them with your brilliance baffle them with your
It’s time to knock off the charade. The Obama regime abused its power and used the IRS as a weapon against conservative American taxpayers. Everything else is bull****. Somebody needs to go to jail.
Let me guess -- it was some time after 5 PM?
I wish someone would work the phrase “vindictive ideological pigs” into these kinds of reports. We need some reality.
VJ: the Darkitect.
Biggest load of crap they could come up with.
“Inappropriate” “Breakdown”, blah blah, like they started targeting left-handed people or some such.
This was a pure political perversion of an arm of the federal government designed to stifle, frustrate and punish political opponents of the administrations socialist agenda.
I had no confidence in this agency to begin with; it must be dismantled completely now to restore any confidence.
To Hell with this agency!
...yeah, it was breaking for three years..along with the lies and thuggery and thief (think there was major kickbacks going to the RAT party?)
“. . .IRS leadership never informed the Board of the change in its new criteria. . .”
IRS has been saying two to four “rouges” in the Cincinnati office were the culprits. But the Board infers that it was the “leadership” that changed the criteria resulting in the profiling of conservative groups.
Seems to me they were pretty "efficient" from a demorats' perspective.
Certainly systematic as well.
This is just more of their talking pts...pouncing upon American propensity to forgive bumbling idiocy. Except 'twasn't done with excessive idiocy; rather, overly zealously clever. Crafty. As in Satanic craftiness.
Now, tell us. How oft' is the irs "forgiving" toward non-compliant taxpayers?
Well this begs the GD question:
Where in hell have the "Oversight Board" and it's nine member overpaid government hacks been?
Besides looting the income of the American private sector, what the hell are these people doing in D.C.?
Someone send an email the corrupt "Oversight Board" and tell them no one is buying this weak sh*t.
I want terminations, arrests and criminal charges for all!
These Obamanation IRS Boards have lost the ability to recognize the difference between Right and Wrong. They have become Zombies.
The question everyone has is this, “What is this?”. (I pad).
What is is is the opening volley against Ft. Sumter. The bombing of Pearl Harbor. The attack on the folks at Lexington. This is the opening salvo in Civil War. This is aggression, pure, simple, naked and raw against us by people who would in public claim to be our fellow citizens whilst in the darkness conspiring against us to achieve through deceit and perfidy what they could not through integrity and honesty. They no longer deserve to be considered as any kind of peer or colleague . They are openly flouting morality, law, integrity, and any other virtue that would cause us to embrace them. Now or later we will of necessity be required by nature itself and as Jefferson said Nature’s God to respond. We did not seek this but it has sought us. God help us.
