IRS Scandal leaves Non-profit division with a staff which has ‘essentially no tax administration experience’

The greatest fallout from the IRS scandal may be the quality of staff left behind after the purge which has occurred at the non-profit wing of the agency.

Bloomberg reports that sources say they see “heightened difficulties for tax preparers dealing with the agency, according to a lawyer who specializes in tax-exemption issues.”

Tea Party deserves the IRS targeting? Some folks feel that way. But how about Progressive groups? Occupy Wall Street?

The news agency cites comments by Marcus Owens, a tax lawyer and former head of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, at a November 15 conference held in Washington by two legal organizations.

Most senior officials at the division retired or were pushed out in the wake of Tea Party scandal, and their replacements have “essentially no tax administration experience,” creating problems for preparers working with the office on securing nonprofit status for clients, Owens said.

Owens formerly headed the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division. The conference where he made his comments was sponsored by the American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education and the American Bar Association Section of Taxation.

The IRS has been caught scrutinizing Tea Party, conservative and religious groups beyond the normal scope of investigation.
