One day after an Aug. 4, 2011 meeting of IRS officials who gathered to discuss the handling of Tea Party tax-exemption applications, an appointment was made for William J. Wilkins, head of the IRS Chief Counsel’s office and one of only two political appointees there, to meet at the White House.
Four days later, on Aug. 9, 2011, Wilkins kept that appointment, according to White House visitor records.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report on IRS scrutiny of Tea Party groups released in May of this year, states that on Aug. 4, 2011, officials from the IRS Chief Counsel’s office and the Rulings and Agreements office met to discuss the agency’s handling of Tea Party applications, “so that everyone would have the latest information on the issue.”
