The organizers of the Tea Party Patriots have called for a nationwide protest against the Internal Revenue Service to challenge the government agency's abuse of power while targeting Tea Party groups.

The planned protests will take place at IRS offices around the country at noon Tuesday. The Tea Party Patriots website highlights more than 100 IRS offices where protests are planned.

Although many Tea Party groups exist, the Tea Party Patriots is one of the most influential coalitions, with more than 3,000 organized chapters.

The organization is sending out protest information, talking points, sample press releases and sample sign messages, as grassroots organizers demand a Congressional investigation of the IRS.

Tea Party Patriots is also asking group organizers to report IRS abuses, by filling out a "Did the IRS target you?" form.
