So illegals don’t cost the United States anything, eh?
Let alone the costs and burdens to schools and hospitals, add another $4.2 billion in tax credits that were amazingly collected by illegals through a tax loophole. President Barack Obama loves to rail about the corporate jet tax loophole, how come Obama isn’t doing anything to close money going to illegal workers? Think this is a new phenomenon? Five years ago, illegals collected $1 billion from the “additional child tax credit.
Undocumented workers collected $4.2 billion in a certain tax credit last year, up from less than $1 billion five years ago, according to a new audit.
The report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration looked only at a tax benefit known as the Additional Child Tax Credit, a refundable credit meant for working families. The audit found that as a result of vague U.S. law — as well as an expansion of the tax credit in stimulus legislation and other measures — the number of illegal workers collecting the money has skyrocketed.
How screwed up could this situation possibly be? Not only don’t we deport illegals who by their very mane have broken US law and are in America illegally … WE ALSO PAY ILLEGALS WITH FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS!!! Unbelievable. Think its not time to completely revamp the US tax code. So IRS agents and the Treasury Department bust American tax payers balls with audits, but they pay out $4.2 billion to illegals!
The inspector general’s office expressed concern about the trend and urged the IRS and Treasury Department to determine once and for all whether that money should be paid out.
“The payment of federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the United States without authorization, which contradicts federal law and policy to remove such incentives,” the report said.
Imagine that, your hard earned tax dollars redistributed to pay illegals with children. If the IRS cannot figure out who is an illegal and who is not, maybe its time to get rid of the IRS altogether and go to a flat/fair tax. Can the US government screw up anything else? Seriously, how do you just mess up on $4.2 billion to illegals? NICE OVERSIGHT.
