US pro-Israel organization claims discrimination by IRS
Z Street says it has been denied tax exempt status for political reasons.
The organization's president, Lori Lowenthal Marcus, told "Globes", "The administration is discriminating against certain organizations because of their views. It's unconstitutional; it's not American behavior."
The lawsuit was filed after a senior IRS official told the organization's lawyer that its application for tax-exempt status for contributions to it would be delayed. The reason the official gave, as cited in the claim, was that IRS policy required consideration of whether a group’s views on Israel differed from those of the current administration.
