It shows the depth of the immigration issue here in the United States," Buck said. "If with one tax return preparer we can find 1,300 tax returns filed by illegal immigrants and $2.6 million in payments by the IRS to illegal immigrants, it is just amazing."

The business itself is not in any trouble with investigators, but the owner said she felt it was unfairly targeted because of its Latino clients and questioned the authority of local police to seize federal tax documents.

Buck said there are 1,338 possible cases of using stolen and/or fake social security numbers and identity theft.


Fifteen suspects were arrested Wednesday and Thursday, and teams will work Friday and through this weekend to pick up more suspects they believe were living here with stolen identities. Authorities plan arrests for the rest of the year and much of 2009.

A total of 98 arrests warrants have been requested to this point.

Amazing. You know someone had to give them information on how to file the papers even if they had stolen SS cards.

They will go to no lengths to bankrupt this nation.

Wow . . . just wow. Every head responsible for this mess should roll starting at the top. The dysfunction, laziness, ignorance and stupidity of the IRS and our government overall is just un freakin' believable.

Is it any wonder that every single illegal alien, con artist, rapist, child molestor, identity thieves and murderers come here in droves?

Our tax dollars pay for interpreters, legal defense and their incarceration where they receive 3 hots, a cot, and don't have to lift a finger in return. I guess their "tax refunds" are simply considered a bonus in exchange for allowing us the pleasure of their company and serving them.

Thanks for article Jim!

It really makes my blood boil that the Gov't from Local to Federal level let these illegal criminals get away with. It's not like we don't already have our share of criminals already.

One couple here with 4 kids together (I'm not sure how many kids they have back in Mexico) used a disabled green card holder as the father on the 4 kids' birth certificates. That way he was able to file and not only get the child tax credit but a large EITC check, and the 3 of them split their "winnings".

There are many ways for illegals to get at this money. It's theirs for the taking.
