IRS Admits Wrongly Targeting and Intimidating Innocent Taxpayers

A shameful breach of public confidence from an agency entrusted with Americans’ sensitive tax records

The alarming admission that the IRS wrongly targeted and intimidated innocent taxpayers – including Central Floridians - based simply on what those Americans believed is a shameful breach of public confidence from an agency entrusted with Americans’ sensitive tax records. Taxpayers sign their tax statement declaring that the information provided is 'true, correct and complete' under penalty of law, and they have the right to demand the IRS act with the same integrity or face the consequences.

The resignation of IRS Commissioner Steven Miller is only a first step toward restoring the public’s trust in this agency, but it alone in no way satisfies the need for justice on behalf of those Americans targeted by their own government. An aggressive and full investigation of this practice is underway in Congress, and those found to have violated the policies or laws of the United States must answer to the American people.
