H.R.5419 - to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide for a right to an administrative appeal relating to adverse determinations of tax-exempt status of certain organizations, is a bill to create an administrative appeal of tax-exempt status rulings. This legislation was written in response to a May 2013 scandal that revealed that an IRS branch in Cincinnati, Ohio had been giving extra scrutiny to 501(c)4 applicant organizations associated with the Tea Party movement.     This legislation seeks to keep the scandal in the spotlight in the run up to the midterm elections.
