WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service asked 7 "unnecessary" questions of Tea Party groups, an inspector general's report says. Those questions, which the report says were not asked of other groups seeking tax-exempt status, came in follow-up letters to the Tea Party groups after the IRS singled them out for special treatment.

The questions, as listed in the inspector general's report:

Requests the names of donors.
Requests a list of all issues that are important to the organization and asks that the organization indicate its position regarding such issues.
Requests 1) the roles and activities of the audience and participants other than members in the activity and 2) the type of conversations and discussions members and participants had during the activity.
Asks whether the officer, director, etc., has run or will run for public office.
Requests the political affiliation of the officer, director, speakers, candidates supported, etc., or otherwise refers to the relationship with identified political party–related organizations.
Requests information regarding employment, other than for the organization, including hours worked.
Requests information regarding activities of another organization – not just the relationship of the other organization to the applicant.
