In The Region:

The Ohio General Assembly’s House Policy and Legislative Oversight Committee met in Cincinnati today to hear from people who claim they were targeted for extra scrutiny by the IRS.

Timothy Savaglio is a member of the Liberty Township Tea Party. He says filling out the IRS’s many and pointed questionnaires became like a full-time job.

“It impacts every board meeting that you have and every single plan that you make," Savaglio says. "You have to look over your shoulder and determine whether or not the IRS is going to view whatever action you take in a way that’s going to come back to haunt you in another set of questions or another letter.”

Savaglio says it has been three years and the IRS has still not rejected or approved his group. If it legally can, Chairman Rep. Mike Dovilla, a Republican of Berea, says his state committee may subpoena Cincinnati-based IRS workers to testify.

“It’s important for this level of government to engage when the residents of this state have been targeted in this manner,” Dovilla says.

Two Tea Party groups, the Ohio Christian Alliance and a man personally named by the IRS in questions to a Tea Party group testified at the hearing.
