Channel 13 WTHR reporter uncovers MASSIVE FRAUD:

Indianapolis News Video | Weather Video Forecast | Sports - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

Over 4 billion per year is being defrauded from the American taxpayer by illegal aliens claiming nephews and nieces in Mexico.
How do they do it?
They file bogus returns, and claim relatives in Mexico to get the "Additional Child Tax Credit"... and the IRS does NOTHING.
(According to the reporter, they've known about this for YEARS. They're waiting on CONGRESS to authorize them to stamp out fraud... yeah, right.)

The politicians whip up a frenzy of "hate" against the rich while literally letting illegals ROB the taxpayers.

Something is very very wrong...

Strange, but none of the undocumented workers I know even file tax returns.

Heck Jet, they are not stealing anything. It's our GREAT tax laws that is allowing them to do it.
And even better, those IRS agents that check over your taxes probably spend more time going after people who make innocent mistakes than flagging the ones with no SS claiming REFUNDS due to credits.

Great system we have eh ?

And folks are crying about the 1%.

Yah, no kidding. Facts like that escape some people.

How many "legal" Americans fraudulently claim offspring and at what cost?

It's called an ITIN and the IRS hands them out like candy.
Don't have to prove anything except that you need to either pay or get a refund. It's strictly used for filing a tax return and nothing else. No fear of being tracked down by ICE. Its for people who do not qualify to get an SS number for any reason.

They are issued regardless of immigration status.

General ITIN Information

According to the report, the IRS offers illegals an ITIN so that they can legally file tax returns.
But they tend to get far more refunds than what they are supposedly paying in taxes.

A big THANK YOU to Congress from the illegal community !

Doesn't surprise me one bit.

The problem is that despite their grandstanding, neither side of the isle gives a ****.

I'll tell you that the IRS swoops down on you IMMEDIATELY.

Happened to me one year when I transposed my son's SS number.
Within weeks I got this "official" letter in the mail. I replied with the correct number and an "I'm sorry". No good. They wanted proof.
I sent whatever I had at the time to prove my 4 year old son's identity...copies of birth cert. and SS card. Still no good. And now I was getting threatening letters.

Had to take a day off of work and go down to the IRS with the 2 documents I had and my son. Asked them "What the hell else I needed because this kid is only 4 years old." Finally got someone with a head on his shoulders and he fixed it for me.

Citizens are under a microscope with the IRS. You see..WE don't have big bucks to afford lawyers or file thousands of papers.

Why the heck ITINs have it so easy with their credits is beyond me.
Then again..this is our dysfunctional government..hard at work FOR YOU !
