Tell Congress: Audit the IRS and Charge Members for their Crimes!

Congress must find the very individuals who authorized the IRS' attacks on free speech, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity.

On May 10, IRS officials apologized for targeting conservative, tea party, and other pro-limited government groups and organizations. 

The fact that IRS agents would bully groups with particular ideologies contrary to their own is a gross fact -- what's worse is that senior IRS officials were aware of these acts since 2011 and had done nothing to stop them. In other words, senior officials have been condoning the use of our taxation system as a bludgeon for nearly three years. 

Congress must audit the Internal Revenue Service for these unacceptable crimes. Congress must find the very individuals who authorized these free-speech-based attacks, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity. 

Sen. Mike Lee said, "This should not be dismissed as just another conflict between left and right; it is a conflict between the federal government and the American people, who — regardless of their political leanings — should be free to exercise their constitutionally protected rights without fear of political retribution from the world’s most powerful tax-collection agency."

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced a resolution on May 14 to investigate these IRS abuses. 

“The IRS has been using taxing power as a political tool to bully these conservative groups and this type of intimidation is a major violation of our U.S. Constitution,” Sen. Paul said. “This act of discrimination should not be tolerated and I demand a formal investigation seeking criminal charges against any individuals who authorized or were involved in targeting people of the United States based on their political views.”

Tell Congress: Pass the Fair Tax Act of 2017! Messages Sent So Far The current federal income tax system is clearly broken — unfair, overly complex, and almost impossible for most Americans to understand. But there is a reasonable, nonpartisan alternative before Congress that is both fair and easy to understand. A system that allows you to keep your whole paycheck and only pay taxes on what you spend. It's called the FairTax. Introduced in the U.S. House and Senate as H.R. 25 and S. 18, respectively, The FairTax is a national sales tax that treats every person equally and allows American businesses to thrive, while generating the same tax revenue as the current four-million-word-plus tax code... and without the I.R.S. The Fair Tax Act of 2017 is the only tax replacement plan before the U.S. Congress that: Eliminates all federal income and payroll taxes including personal, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security/Medicare, self-employment and corporate. Eliminates the need for businesses and individuals to file federal income tax returns. Eliminates over 74,000 pages of Internal Revenue Code and the estimated $350 billion in annual compliance costs. Defunds, disbands and eliminates the Internal Revenue Service. Favors American businesses and workers over foreign corporation, and dramatically increases the rate of economic growth and job creation. Brings American jobs back to America and generates employment opportunities for the hundreds of thousands of chronically unemployed. Repeals the 16th Amendment and direct taxation through companion legislation. Take action and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to co-sponsor the Fair Tax Act of 2017.

Just read we have the "freedom" to burn an American Flag, but no freedom to help people in need through Christian organizations??? This is not the America that our forefathers fought for, or are soldiers are fighting for now. Sounds like the IRS and others in control are against America and are doing whatever they can to destroy it.

IRs also needs to stop taking away people's income making them destitute through high penalties, interests and liens. It is evil and greedy practices which goes against the rights of individuals rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
