Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued a statement regarding the recent national discussion surrounding the Internal Revenue Services’ examination of 501(c)(4) organizations.

“It is the job of the Internal Revenue Service to inspect with impartiality 501(c)(4) organizations  to determine if they continue to be devoted solely to the promotion of social welfare,” said Congressman Bishop. “I was deeply troubled by the revelation within the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration’s report that cites that the IRS used inappropriate criteria to inspect certain organizations, and look forward to a swift remedy and correction of any improprieties. The American people deserve no less.”
