How is asking about the nature of their prayers got anything to do with a "non-profit"... seeing how Westboro Baptist Church is a non-profit church
that "prays with hate" appears to be acceptable.
Is there an IRS code that specifies what type of prayer is acceptable?
On a side note: targeting is the daily operation of the IRS. Personally ungoing a "witch hunt" audit that lasted over 3 years, intimidation was their
number one priority. As a self employed individual I actually found on the IRS website a document stating that they targeting a specific "industry",
which happened to be the one I am in.
As a small business I was disallowed legitimate deductions such as cell phone expenses (because I couldn't prove it wasn't used for personal use
because the cell phone bills no longer contain the individual calls anymore) and I was disallowed common things like copy paper. And that is after I
had to provide every single receipt sent into them copied onto copy paper. I'm sure I went through 2,500 pieces of copy paper. Even made 6 notebooks
to keep everything straight.
They even went so far to request a copy of my client database and telephone numbers so they could call my customers to see if I really did business
with them. This is where we put our foot down and said no.
Upon hearing that they disallowed ALL my business expenses for 3 years. They were now coming after an additional $75K in taxes, nearly double what I
had already paid them.
It was unfair, it was intimidating, it was insulting. The auditor actually told my CPA to his face that "your clients are lying on their taxes and
I'm going to prove it and I don't care how long it takes."
We eventially took my case to appeals, I won on most issues but lost on others. My 3 year audit netted them about $5,000.
This robbed 3 years of my life, caused my income to drop 50% because I was spending so much time on the audit. It was criminal.
