Small NC nonprofit--the Teaberry Fund, founded to help disabled kids--left wondering if its "tea" name torpedoed its IRS ruling.
"In the weeks after his call to the U.S. government’s tax collection and enforcement agency, Weaver and the rest of the world watched the late IRS scandal unfold in all its lurid detail. He began to wonder if his application had been one of the many flagged for scrutiny because it contained the letters T-E-A. [H]is application was effectively canned. 'They blocked a (nonprofit) so small, it doesn’t have enough money to join a class action lawsuit,' he said." -- Dylan Lightfoot, the Jefferson (NC) Post
