"IRS Must Act on Seven Tea Party Exemption Applications," Bloomberg BNA
In an article published by Bloomberg BNA on October 17, 2016, Julian A. Fortuna was quoted in an article discussing the recent order requiring the IRS to issue determinations within 30 days on the remaining exemption applications of seven conservative organizations. The ruling is the latest step in a years-long controversy stemming from the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax exemptions. Mr. Fortuna suggests that while the court’s ruling is a win for the groups, the case won’t be over once the IRS issues its determinations. “We are expecting the courts to continue to monitor this situation to make sure that the discriminatory conduct does not continue, or if it has been discontinued, that it doesn’t reoccur,” said Mr. Fortuna.
