Obama changing Tax Rules as the GOP Protests Rule Change

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is changing tax rules for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which worries Republicans.

140128-obama-sotu-2-2150.photoblog600 [1]Reuters reported [2] that at least eleven top Republican congressional representatives signed a letter urging the administration to stop the rule change.

This comes on the heels of the controversial IRS scandal [3] where recent findings show the administration targeted conservative Tea Party groups [4] before the 2012 presidential election. The rule change affects powerful political groups and their tax status.
