Rep Dave Camp (R-MI)
Congressman Dave Camp, (R-MI), Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means, today announced that the Committee will hold a hearing featuring organizations targeted by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) based on their personal beliefs. The hearing will take place on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, in Room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building, beginning at 10:00 A.M.

In view of the limited time available to hear witnesses, oral testimony at this hearing will be from invited witnesses only. However, any individual or organization not scheduled for an oral appearance may submit a written statement for consideration by the Committee and for inclusion in the printed record of the hearing. A list of invited witnesses will follow.


The Committee on Ways and Means has led a two-year investigation into whether the IRS treated certain applicants for tax-exempt status differently on the basis of their personal beliefs. The agency now admits to the practice, and the Committee is continuing its work to determine how the practice was established and why it was allowed to continue.

In announcing the hearing, Chairman Camp said, “While we now know that the IRS began targeting individuals based on their personal beliefs three years ago, we still need to know who began this targeting and why, and we need to understand how individuals were affected by the IRS’s abuse. This hearing will provide a voice to those Americans who wound up under the IRS’s political microscope on the basis of their beliefs.”[More...]
