The Iowa Coalition of Life is just one of many conservative groups who say the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) unfairly targeted them because of their beliefs when it came to applying for nonprofit status.
Tax experts say no matter what the organization is, applying for tax exempt status is a complicated, time-consuming process.
There are dozens of pages an organization has to answer to obtain a nonprofit status.
And with those questions, also come detailed instructions and complex terms which can make the process difficult for an individual to complete.
Tax experts say while some questions might seem a unnecessary, they're within good reason.
