Even without a Social Security Number, illegal immigrants are able to file tax returns and some are claiming children that live in Mexico, getting refunds bigger than $10,000.
Ultimately this is costing American taxpayers $4.2 billion a year.
"I can bring out stacks and stacks. It's just so easy it's ridiculous." "The magnitude of the problem has grown exponentially," said Russell George, the United States Department of Treasury's Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). "We have made recommendations to [IRS] as to how they could address this, and they have not taken sufficient action in our view to solve the problem."
Worse, the IRS HAS KNOWN OF THIS FRAUD FOR YEARS!!!
