IRS vs. The Ohio Liberty Council
In recent months the IRS has been trying to bring the Tea Party movement to heel by attacking the 501(c)3 status of groups around the country. The Ohio Liberty Council (OLC), an umbrella organization for over 70 “liberty groups” around the state of Ohio, has been ordered by the IRS to provide intrusive information about its membership and finances. This is clearly part of the larger campaign to harass these groups. The OLC has decided to push back.
