IRS is a big supporter of illegal immigrants so much so, they hand them millions each year in unaudited tax credits.
A bombshell report, “Paying Illegals to Stay” written by Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) fellow David North reveals that the Treasury has paid out a whopping $4.2 billion to the families of illegal aliens.
“This particular paying-the-illegals-to-stay pattern revolves around the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), which is not so much a tax credit as it is an income-transfer program for low-income families, offering up to $1,000 per child to all resident families, including those of illegal aliens,” North explains.
They might have kept flowing indefinitely were it not for the outstanding efforts of Bob Segall, a senior investigative reporter for WTHR-TV in Indianapolis. Running his first report on the scam on April 26, 2012, Segall related the story told to him by an anonymous Indiana tax consultant. The consultant revealed that several returns filed by illegal aliens were successfully claiming ACTC tax refunds of as much as $1000 for as many as a dozen dependents. “Here’s a return right here: we’ve got a $10,300 refund for nine nieces and nephews,” he said. “We’re getting an $11,000 refund on this tax return. There’s seven nieces and nephews,” he added, pointing to another set of documents. “I can bring out stacks and stacks. It’s just so easy it’s ridiculous.”
Segall tracked down a single illegal alien living at a southern Indiana home used by four more illegals whodidn’t live there. Despite that reality, those workers claimed 20 children as dependents–and the IRS sent them checks totaling $29,608.
