(WASHINGTON, DC) – Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement after H.R. 5053, the preventing IRS Abuse and Protecting Free Speech Act, passed the House of Representatives this week, with his strong support.
“This legislation would prevent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from collecting donor lists, including names and addresses from many non-profit organizations. The IRS has used donor information to target conservative non-profit groups for abusive audits and investigations. The IRS will still be able to enforce tax laws without targeting taxpayers or organizations based on their political views,”
“This legislation is a common sense approach in preventing the IRS from targeting non-profit groups based on their beliefs and I was pleased to support it,” Rogers said.
