State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced that the Ohio House passed a bipartisan resolution urging the IRS to not review tax-exempt applications of based on an organization’s presumed political affiliation.

Beginning in 2010, the IRS used inappropriate criteria to review organizations applying for tax-exempt status, according to a recent report by the federal Inspector General. Organizations that underwent further scrutiny based on such criteria experienced extended delays and in many cases were asked to provide unnecessary information.

“I’m pleased that the House could pass this resolution and make the voices of Ohioans known,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “The IRS office in Cincinnati was an integral part of the investigation, showing that this issue is closer to home than many think.”

House Concurrent Resolution 27 will be sent to the US Secretary of the Treasury and the acting IRS commissioner.
