Progress Texas Statement on IRS/Tea Party Story

Progress Texas received similar letter from IRS as Tea Party groups
May 15, 2013

(TEXAS) - The following is a statement from Ed Espinoza, Executive Director of Progress Texas, on the IRS/Tea Party story:

"Progress Texas and the Tea Party strongly disagree on the role of government. Yet, when we applied for tax-exempt status, Progress Texas received the same type of additional scrutiny that Tea Party groups are complaining about. The similar treatment indicates the IRS was likely addressing a flood of 501c4 applications after Citizens United, and undermines the paranoid notion that Tea Party groups were singled out."
