TRAC co-directors filed suit against the IRS
(14 Apr 2005) TRAC co-directors filed suit against the IRS on April 14, 2005. The IRS is illegally withholding information about its operations, claiming that the public release of some of it would compromise homeland security. Details of the agency's actions are laid out in the lawsuit against the IRS filed on April 14 under the Freedom of Information Act. The lawsuit, brought for TRAC's co-directors David Burnham and Susan B. Long by Scott Nelson of the Public Citizen Litigation Group, is part of an ongoing effort to provide the American people with information they need to judge how the IRS is carrying out its important responsibilities. The agency's current policy of refusing to make public routine statistical information and how it is collected reverses a thirty-year period of relative openness. For more information, see the press release about the filing, the actual complaint and a short discussion of the dangers posed by IRS secrecy.
