WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Winston-Salem Forsyth County Patriots plan to protest the IRS office at 1677 Westbrook Plaza Drive in Winston-Salem at 12 p.m. Tuesday.

The group said the Tea Party Patriots will be protesting IRS locations across the country.

They said the protest is in response to the IRS allegedly targeting conservative groups for additional scrutiny.

“The IRS has demonstrated the most disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power,” said group member Pattie Curran, in a prepared statement.
