PRESIDENT OPENS NEW ASSAULT ON AMERICAN VETS-- IRS AUDITING AMERICAN LEGION!
The Internal Revenue Service is targeting the veterans' organization the American Legion, and a U.S. senator believes that Lois Lerner - a key figure in the IRS scandal - is to blame.
"The IRS now requires American Legion posts to maintain dates of service and character of service records for all members. The penalty for not having the required proof of eligibility is, apparently, $1,000 per day," the American Legion stated.
The American Legion was referring to a 13-part section of Part 4, Chapter 76 of the Internal Revenue Manual pertaining to "veterans' organizations."
"The American Legion has recently learned of the so-called IRS 'audit manual' and is concerned that portions of it attempt to amend statutes passed by Congress and approved by the president," American Legion legal counsel Philip Onderdonk, Jr. told The Daily Caller.
