Illegals Ripping Off U.S. Taxpayers

When a local tax preparer in Indianapolis decided to blow the whistle on a scam being used to funnel billions of American taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants through an IRS tax loophole, the resulting story was met with anger and outrage.

Channel 13 WHTR’s reporter, Bob Segall, wrote a two-part expose of the scam and ran it on television on April 26, explaining how it works. The Internal Revenue Code provides for an “additional child tax credit” of up to $1,000 to help working families who have children living at home. It requires that each child live at home for at least six months out of the year. But several years ago illegal immigrants discovered a loophole that allows them to claim as many children as they want — including nieces and nephews — even if they have never stepped foot on American soil.

Illegals must pay taxes but they can’t obtain a Social Security number. And so to remedy the situation, President Bill Clinton signed into law a solution: Illegals can receive a nine-digit individual taxpayer number — an ITIN — which allows their employers to withhold payroll taxes. When it was discovered that the IRS was lax in determining who actually had children living at home, or not, the scam took off. ITIN claims for the credit totaled $161 million in 2001 but have ballooned to $4.2 billion in 2011.

    So I don’t call that a “loophole” and I don’t call it a “scam” either. I call that CHEATING, LYING, COMMITTING FRAUD. Loophole? If that’s a “loophole” I could come up with a bunch.

      Calm thyself cousin. See how everyday more lies and deceit come to light?

      I see many, many examples now as the foundations of marxism begin to crack. I can take no pleasure in folks suffering, however the very fact that at least more wake up pleases me.

      God bless you and yours 🙂
