Legislators set IRS hearing

CINCINNATI

A state House committee wants to hear from Ohioans who believe they were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service because of their political leanings.

The House Policy and Legislative Oversight Committee scheduled a July 25 hearing at the University of Cincinnati. The committee stated Thursday that comments from those testifying will be submitted to Ohio’s congressional delegation.

An IRS Cincinnati office played a key role in what agency officials have said was improper scrutiny of tea party and other groups when they sought tax- exempt status. Several Ohio-based tea-party groups and leaders have charged they were unfairly singled out. IRS employees have denied partisan motives.

Committee chairman Mike Dovilla says it is unacceptable that government personnel would “harass ordinary citizens” and their groups. He is a Berea Republican.
