The scandal that announced the IRS was holding certain applications that applied for non-profit status continues to evolve.
Originally held accountable were the lower-level employees in the Cincinnati office. Upon investigation, those employees said they were only doing as their superiors told them to do so. As the issue was brought to light, top IRS official Lois G. Lerner, admitted to the targeting of taxpayers. Lerner no longer works for the IRS. Current acting commissioner Daniel Warfel ordered a 30-day review of the situation and said he found no evidence that supports the IRS did any wrongdoing. As of current, no changes have been implemented to ensure similar events don’t occur and ongoing applications aren’t scrutinized on unrelated information or affiliations.
