The tea party is fighting back on a national level against the Internal Revenue Service.

Jenny Beth Martin and Tea Party Patriots, Inc., have called for protests Tuesday at local IRS offices around the country in response to the targeting of tea party groups for extra scrutiny.

The protests are scheduled for Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. local time for “anyone and everyone” looking to voice their disapproval of the admitted abuse of power by IRS officials

As stated on the Tea Party Patriots web site:

The IRS is out of control. On behalf of Tea Party, Patriot groups, 9/12, liberty activists, and the American people, we are calling for anyone and everyone to protest the IRS’ complete abuse of power on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at noon local time.

“The purpose is to make sure that American citizens across the country understand that this scandal spreads far and wide,” Martin tells US News.

She also said plans are in the works for a lawsuit against the tax agency.

Other tea party groups have responded to the scandal by working Capitol Hill, according to US News. Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips says the group is pushing lawmakers to introduce legislation that would prevent future abuses at the IRS.

Michelle Malkin also weighed in on her blog: “Don’t stand down. Stand up and let the IRS know we won’t roll over. Tuesday. At your local IRS office. Be there.”
