First Stone Credit Counseling Files Suit Against IRS to Retain Tax Status

A tipster (send in your tips here) sent me notice that First Stone Credit Counseling, a Texas non-profit company, filed suit against the Internal Revenue Service on November 18, 2011 in an effort to fight the revocation of their tax status.

According to the suit, First Stone Credit Counseling has already received a notice of revocation of their tax status and filed suit in an attempt to appeal the process.

First Stone Credit Counseling says the IRS has “provided no evidence or facts that would justify revoking our Tax Exempt 501(c)(3) status.”

It is alleged in the suit by First Stone Credit Counseling that IRS auditor Mike Hudson agreed that the organization was operated in a compliant manner. Bruce Danielson, Executive Director says, “However, it was Mr. Hudson’s boss, a Ms. Renee Wells, whom we never met nor knowingly ever visited our premises, for whatever reason, later she overrode her agent and ruled to the contrary and that strongly appears to “smell” of “political” issues.
