WASHINGTON — An Internal Revenue Service supervisor in Washington says she was personally involved in scrutinizing some of the earliest applications from Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status, including some requests that languished for more than a year without action.

Holly Paz, who until recently was a top deputy in the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, told congressional investigators she reviewed 20 to 30 applications. Her assertion contradicts initial claims by the agency that a small group of agents working in an office in Cincinnati were solely responsible for mishandling the applications.

Paz, however, provided no evidence that senior IRS officials ordered agents to target conservative groups or that anyone in the Obama administration outside the IRS was involved.

Instead, Paz described an agency in which IRS supervisors in Washington worked closely with agents in the field but didn’t fully understand what those agents were doing. Paz said agents in Cincinnati openly talked about handling “Tea Party” cases, but she thought the term was merely shorthand for all applications from groups that were politically active — conservative and liberal.

GOP In ‘Death Spiral’; Will Fail in 2016 Without Immigration

Paz said dozens of Tea Party applications sat untouched for more than a year while field agents waited for guidance from Washington on how to handle them. At the time, she said, Washington officials thought the agents in Cincinnati were processing the cases.

Paz was among the first IRS employees to be interviewed as part of a joint investigation by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee.

Congressional investigators have interviewed at least six IRS employees as part of their inquiry. The Associated Press has reviewed transcripts from three interviews — with Paz and with two agents, Gary Muthert and Elizabeth Hofacre, from the Cincinnati office.

The IRS declined comment for this story.

A yearlong audit by the agency’s inspector general found that IRS agents had improperly targeted conservative political groups for additional and sometimes onerous scrutiny when those groups applied for tax-exempt status.

The audit found no evidence that Washington officials ordered or authorized the targeting. But the IRS watchdog blamed ineffective management by senior IRS officials for allowing it to continue for nearly two years during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

Since the revelations became public last month, much of the agency’s leadership has been replaced and the Justice Department has started a criminal investigation. Both Paz and her supervisor, Lois Lerner, who headed the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, have been replaced.

Agency officials told congressional aides that Lerner was placed on administrative leave. They did not disclose the status Paz, other than to say she was replaced June 7.

Lerner is the IRS official who first disclosed the targeting at a legal conference May 10. That day, she told The AP:“It’s the line people that did it without talking to managers. They’re IRS workers, they’re revenue agents.”
IF THE AVERAGE JOE HAD DONE THIS THEIR ASS WOULD GO
TO JAIL!!!!!!!!!!HOWEVER NOT EVERONE IS ABOVE THE LAW LIKE OBAMA AND ALL YOU OBAMA VOTERS YOUR ASS WOULD ALSO WENT TO JAIL!!!!!!

The Magic Negro has increasingly become irrelevant on the world stage. China, Russia, India and others are sitting down to hammer out a new global currency kicking the Dollar to the curb.

China is divvying up the China Sea into a fruit bowl for itself. The countries in the area looked over to the Magic Negro for Western guidance and saw that he was busy with Al Green, Gay Marriage and Trayvon Martin. Clueless Jerk that he is, China and Russia are riding roughshod over him and laughing in private.

The Boy Messiah is not even a player in Syria. He's a has-been. When he lectured the EU about how to handle an economic crisis, they all nodded at him, smiled cordially and then proceeded to tell him nicely to go screw himself.

He's still trying. And succeeding.

The IRS, the NSA, the FBI and local cops can dig into everybody's business Carte Blanche but State Elections Officers cannot be allowed to determine if Jose and his 16 children are here illegally and whether or not they should be allowed to vote for the Magic Negro or his appointees in fixed elections.

Something is very wrong.

I am photoed at every traffic intersection, the supermarket knows what I buy weekly and sells that info to everybody and their uncle including the NSA. I can look up addresses of sexual predators' living in my neighborhood and locate crime statistics based on race but I am not allowed to see how many illegal Mexicans are voting for Democrats in my District.

That would be Politically Incorrect.

If you are a teacher and not paying SS taxes, then you are a tax cheat, plain and simple.
Wrong again stupid! When Social Security was enacted it applied only to private sector employees and excluded those in the private sector, like teachers, police, firefighters, etc. In the 1950's the law was changed so that states could, on a voluntary basis and by referendum place their public sector workers into the federal system or retain their independent retirement systems. There are 14 states which have opted to retain state retirement systems.
Public sector workers who have an independent retirement system don't pay into Social Security but then again they don't collect on it either. So how are they tax cheats dimwit?
But thank you for demonstrating once again how abysmally ignorant you are.

Once again you are full of sh*t.

To dig into everyone's business would require a court order.

If you don't want your picture with the State, don't get a driver's license.

The supermarket knows what you buy because you use a "bonus card".

As for the Republican's voter suppression in AZ: "But a lawsuit brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund revealed that registration applications from 31,000 prospective voters were turned down by Arizona because they did not have driver's licenses or U.S. passports. Ninety percent of them were citizens born in the United States."

The Secretary of State asking what difference does it make that an ambassador and three Americans are dead and me asking you what difference my 401k made 20 years ago...
Nevermind, I'm trying to reason with a liberal.
This isn't the first time you've trotted out that blatant distortion of what Hillary Clinton said Carol, totally ignoring the whole statement and using an out of context snippet. Here's the whole statement made before the Senate Intelligence Committee;
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime."
So Carol, are you just lazy or intellectually dishonest?

McCain and Romney have this in common: they are honest enough to not cheat in elections.
The Magic Negro has always fought efforts to clean up elections. His illegal Mexicans came to his aid and the Black Panthers, ACORN and every Federal Agency was corrupted to further his election chances.
The Hood mentality reigns supreme inside of Socialist Circles of the White House.
Long ago, way back there in Chicago and Illinois politics, it was publicly stated that whoever loses against the Magic Negro does so because of their being honest.
It still holds true at this moment.
You, McCain and Romney all have this in common: Losers.

Doctors all over the country are opting out of accepting insurance and government subsidies as payment for healthcare and taking cash paying customers. It seems that Obamacare is forcing them to reevaluate how they provide the best healthcare to their patients. Not only does it cut out the middle man (government and insurance companies), but it also drastically reduces prices for patients; some by as much as half!
There's one way to bankrupt O'bama and his uncare.
How many Americans can afford the Repub Plan of healthcare which is if you have money you get it if not you die. How many Americans are going to have the $80K plus for that heart attack treatment?

If the government is going to violate the Constitution, given the facts of recent history, wouldn't it make more sense to spy on the muslims here?
Obviously, yes.
However, this administration has exempted the muslims from his unconstitutional spying, and concentrated that spying on the very people the muslims here want to kill.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to connect those dots and conclude Obama is one of the terrorists who wants to kill Americans. Perhaps Janet Napolitano building a Department of Homeland Security war machine greater than any of 90 percent of the countries in the world is part of that plan.

In English.
That is the way our education system worked before the so-called "progressives" took control of it, when the United States had the most educated workforce in the world.
Today, after 40 years of so-called "progressives" controlling our education system, we generate the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world... while spending more money than anyone else.
