June Progress Report

June 1, 2013

Yes, we are a victim of the IRS targeting strategy.

Our application for exemption under Section 501(c)(4) was filed on December 1, 2011. We received the “We need more information...” letter on July 27, 2012 and satisfied the request on August 2, 2012. On September 20, we received the “Unfortunately, we need more information...” letter. This letter said we were required to file IRS forms as though we were exempt even though no exemption had ever been granted and asked us to file a form which was not correct. We refused to sign the false request but modified it to make it correct and filed it on October 1, 2012. On October 17, we received a call from the IRS agent to the effect that if we faxed certain verbiage to the IRS, we would be deemed effective under Section 501(c)(4) on May 15, 2012. We sent the required verbiage but have heard nothing since then and have no proof of our exemption other than the paperwork we filed.

If the IRS can run away from the rule of law, imagine all the other agencies which are more partisan in nature and do. All of this points to the need for the proposals advocated by us. Your continuing support is appreciated.
