Congressional committee hears from 3rd District resident

June 4, 2013

Third District Congressman Jeff Duncan issued a statement today after a Tea Party organizer from his hometown of Laurens testified at the House Ways and Means Committee’s hearing on the IRS. Diamne Belsom’s testimony came on the day of newspaper headlines that quote the new IRS director to concede Americans no longer trust the agency that collects taxes. Duncan also said IRS has lost Americans’ trust and added, “Congress has a responsibility to discover the truth and why this was allowed to happen….” Belsom claimed IRS overburdened her Laurens chapter of the Tea Party with paperwork and questions about its request for a tax-exempt status.
