Well, if citizens who have a zero tax liability and have not paid any taxes in can get refunds, why not illegals? Does it state on the forms or books that only citizens are included in the tax laws? Would the IRS accept tax payments from a non citizen who earns income in the US? Seems to me if taxes are collectable from non citizens (illegal or not) then refunds would be payable to them just a well. The only real issue is that we pay refunds to people (citizens included) that have paid zero in taxes.

This could be the harbinger of the breakdown of the entire tax system. Why should any citizen pay taxes (especially in distressed economic times) if the system is not fair and laws are not enforced?
