The IRS this week said it would begin processing applications of tea party groups that it held up for years, The Washington Times reports.

However, for one such group in Texas, saying and doing are two different things.

The Texas Patriots Tea Party received a letter from the Justice Department saying it finally, after four years, would see some movement on its application, but no details were provided, the Times reported.

"The IRS has decided that it will process the applications of plaintiffs whose applications remain outstanding, including the application for We the People of Texas (Texas Patriots Tea Party). We will be in further contact regarding the application process once we have heard from the IRS," Justice attorney Joseph Sergi wrote to the group's attorney, the Times reports.

A Federal Appeals Court slammed the agency earlier this month, saying the IRS must prove that it had indeed ceased targeting of conservative groups, and also accused the agency of coercing groups into dropping lawsuits in order for applications to get processed.

Sergi referred the Times to the IRS; the IRS refused to divulge to the Times any details about timing or process on when or how applications would start getting processed.
