IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups
This case concerns IRS (Internal Revenue Service) targeting of conservative organizations for special scrutiny. The curated materials include a timeline of the case, an auditor’s report on the IRS, opinion pieces published in national media, and two video clips from national news outlets. Together the materials present factual information and opinions about what actions were taken by the IRS, how the scandal emerged and was handled, and the subsequent repercussions for the operations and legitimacy of executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government. This is recommended as a case study in the management of public organizations.
