IRS denies Tea Party groups after 7 year wait

Washington TimesNearly seven years after it applied to the IRS for nonprofit status, the Albuquerque Tea Party has finally been given a decision: Denied.

The tax agency, under orders from a federal judge, is belatedly tackling the remaining tea party cases that it delayed for years, and so far the tea party isn’t doing well. Only one of the three groups in the case was approved, and the other two, including Albuquerque, got notices of proposed denials last week.

Delay as long as possible, then deny, and force them to challenge the denials in court. All while they can't use their tax-exempt status to raise funds to help.

I don't have any idea about the actual merits of these applications, except that if it was appropriate to deny them, the denials should have issued years ago.
