  •  Keywords and red flags (0+ / 0-)

    Any small business knows there are red flags that can get them targeted for an audit. Those red flags get flown when certain keywords  or line items get scanned on the return propably.  To me it just seems the IRS was doing their job with these nonprofit applications.

    It makes sense that apps for nonprofit tax exempt status would be screened for red flag keywords. The combination of two contradictory adjectives, nonpolitcal and patriot, on a nonprofit status application seem like a quite rational reason for a bit of extra attention.

    Afterall if you are legit and have nothing to hide, what's the problem? (Almost word-for-word quote from an IRS auditor years ago.)

    And or corse this is classic Rove victimhood.
