Dollar was one of six televangelists that were the focus of an investigation in 2007 conducted by United States Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa as the top senator on the Senate Finance Committee. Grassley demanded financial data to determine if Dollar had any personal gains from donations to charity and demanded Dollar’s church to provide the information on or before December 6, 2007. The investigation also sought details on five other televangelists, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Eddie L. Long, Joyce Meyer, and Paula White. Dollar opposed the investigation by arguing that the proper authority to conduct an investigation into faith-based groups would be the IRS and instead of the Committee on Finance. Dollar and three other individuals did not cooperate and the investigation was concluded in 2011 without a single charge.
