WTF: IRS Sent 23,994 Refund Checks to ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at Same Address in Atlanta and Sent 8,393 Refund Checks to Same Bank Account
IRS, TOO BIG TOO SUCCEED … ARE YOU KIDDING ME … MAYBE THE IRS SHOULD PAY MORE ATTENTION TO FRAUDULENT REFUNDS VS. TARGETING CONSERVATIVES!!!
As reported by CNS News, the IRS sent 23,994 refund checks totaling $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers at the same address in Atlanta. HUH? How is that possible? Seriously, are you telling me that the IRS does not have a database that triggers a red flag when multiple refunds are sent to one address? The hell with multiple, how about setting the trigger to 100? Let’s face it, the American tax payers are being robbed blind and the IRS could care less. Instead, they target the Tea Party, they promote those who committed illegal targeting, they pissed away millions on conventions and they provide bonuses to their own. But God forbid they actually run a competent ship. Just curious, how does anyone at the IRS get a bonus checks for $70 million when they incompetently sent 23,994 refund checks totaling $46,378,040 to one address? And this is the organization that is going to be in charge of Obamacare. GOOD GRIEF!!! Just how much incompetence, scandal and mismanagement of tax payer’s $’s needs to be uncovered before the Congress has the guts to abolish the IRS?
I guess this is what Barack Obama considers as people paying their fair share of taxes and the redistribution of wealth.
The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.
The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

As stated at Biz Pac Review, nor is the problem limited to Atlanta or even Georgia. Similar examples can be found all over the country.
Although that single Atlanta address was perhaps the most egregious example, it was by no means the only one. As it turns out, “four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to ‘unauthorized’ aliens were in Atlanta,” as reported by CNS News.
Nor is the problem limited to Atlanta or even Georgia. Similar examples can be found all over the country. Here in South Florida, the IRS sent 1,972 refunds to “unauthorized” recipients totaling $2,256,302, all going to a single address in Palm Beach Gardens.
Other cities hard hit with thousands of refunds going to a single address include Oxnard, Calif., Raleigh, N.C., Phoenix, Ariz., San Jose, Calif. and Alvin, Calif. In each case, millions in improper IRS refunds were sent to one residence.
As Protein Wisdom sarcastically posts, COME ON, now! You can’t really blame the IRS!! They had other pressing priorities, like harassing TEA Party groups with $2,000 budgets.
These SOB’s actually have the audacity to go after law abiding Americans and harass other tax payers with intimidating demand letters and they sent 23,994 refund checks totaling $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers at the same address. The IRS does not need to be audited, THEY NEED TO BE ABOLISHED!!! This is what happens when something becomes too big and has no controls in place. For decades upon decades the IRS has been allowed to be judge, jury and executioner. They have been allowed to intimidate and treat people to be guilty until proven innocent. This is simply unacceptable. THE IRS NEEDS TO BE ENDED NOW.
