The IRS and the Illegal Immigrants

There’s a link between the scandal-ridden IRS and illegal immigrants.  Who knew?  Well here’s one more bit of ammunition in the war against Obama and the IRS:

There is a law on the IRS books that illegal aliens can be taxed.  The IRS boys decided they were earning money (mostly illegal Mexicans), let’s tax them.  However, they have no SSAN (Social Security Account Number).  So they assigned them an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identity Number).  Now, illegal aliens can pay taxes.

But wait; the illegal aliens that get ITIN numbers don’t make much money.  But it turns out they figured out they can get thousands (often more than $10,000) on their returns by claiming “dependents” through the Additional Child Tax Credit.  Most of these dependents have never been to the US.  Claim a dozen or so sons/daughters/nieces/nephews as dependents and Jose gets a sizable check from the U.S.  Some $4.2 Billion (with a B) drained from the IRS.

We have a friend living outside the U.S. with dependent children.  He can’t claim EIC (Earned Income Credit) for them, but the illegal aliens can claim all their “dependents” living in Mexico, etc.

Why haven’t they closed this loophole?  Who’s benefiting from this (besides the illegal aliens)?

In March, a WTHR-TV Indianapolis investigative report exposed a fraudulent scheme concocted by the IRS to sending $4.2 billion per year to illegal immigrants as an “additional child tax credit” for children who don’t even live in the U.S.

Further, the IRS and Congress have been ignoring the scheme for years.  The Inspector General’s office has repeatedly identified the problem in audit after audit.  The Inspector General for the IRS, Russell George says, “The magnitude of the problem has grown exponentially,” but the IRS is doing nothing to stop it.

“It’s so easy, it’s ridiculous,” the tax preparer whistleblower who exposed the fraud admits.  Names are simply listed on the IRS form.  “The more you put on there, the more you get back.”  No questions asked…the check’s in the mail. 

Meanwhile, the IRS asked the Tea Party groups plenty of questions – 55 pages of questions about who their donors were.  What books they read.  Whether they were truly social welfare organizations.


The question is, is the Internal Revenue Service a social welfare organization?
