The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has scheduled a hearing for Thursday to discuss the audit with officials from the Treasury Department’s inspector general’s office, which earlier this month confirmed accusations that the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.

The committee, in its official announcement on Friday, said the hearing will focus on “an upcoming audit uncovering information about excessive spending at IRS conferences.”
