IRS Commissioner John Koskinen confirmed Tuesday that illegal immigrants granted amnesty from deportation under President Obama’s new policies would be able to get extra refunds from the IRS for money they earned while working illegally, as long as they filed returns during those years.
So… here’s how you do it: 1. Figure out how many years you’ve been in the country illegally; 2. Since you’ve been here illegally, there’s really no one to say how long that is, so just pick the maximum number; 3. File tax returns for those years; 4. Grab yourself some tasty Obama refunds courtesy of legal taxpaying Americans. You’re welcome!
While many Americans struggle to earn a living or barely scrape by on unemployment and live in fear of IRS audits, in 2011, the IRS sent more than $46 million in tax refunds to 23,994 “unauthorized” alien workers who all listed the same address in Atlanta, GA.
The Atlanta address wasn’t the only one that received millions in tax refunds housing thousands; there were actually four addresses in Atlanta and six in other states that were issued anywhere from 1,846 to 23,994 tax refunds each.
To be clear: Illegal immigrants who are granted the amnesty will be given official Social Security numbers, which means they can go back and amend up to three years of previous tax forms to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, and grab billions of dollars in additional payments they were ineligible for before the amnesty. The IRS states he EITC credit can be claimed retroactively.
Got it? Open the borders, encourage people to come in, grant amnesty, issue Social Security numbers, give money, vote Democrat. What kind of idiots are we that we’re not stopping this? Forget about your tax dollars – what about your wages?
Remember: Cheap and illegal labor suppresses all wages. Even if an employer never hires an illegal alien, ever – there’s still the implicit negotiating tool of it being available which drives all wages down.
And amnesty merely makes it easier, because now it’s legal to hire an unskilled, illiterate, third world laborer to work for nothing.
On a side note: Happy there big unions? Good job there supporting Democrats all these years – how did that work out for your workers? Or should I say, how did that work out for unions in general?
Good job Republican voters.
What a scam they perpetuated on Republican voters – enabling the importation of millions of Democrat voters!
That’s right, but by the time millions and millions of low-wage, barely literate, non-English speaking people from places you wouldn’t want to live in either settle in here with Driver’s Licenses, free IRS money, ObamaCare, SS numbers and yes, voting rights – the Boehners and McConnells will be long gone.
They’ll have cushy positions somewhere with the folks who funded this whole disaster.
Oh, but you can’t primary a Republican – don’t do that – it will hurt the GOP and we just need the House, the Senate and the White House and things will be dandy. Republicans will cut spending, eliminate the EPA, the Deparment of Energy, Education, dismantle the IRS… bla bla bla.
Before we have a chance at defeating the Maoist Wannabes who are granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and giving them your tax dollars, we must defeat the Republicans who make it all possible. Stop kidding yourself.
But wait – there’s more:
The Washington Times reports that the Earned Income Tax Credit isn’t the only tax credit to be ensnared in the immigration debate.
The IRS already pays out billions of dollars a year to illegal immigrants under a program known as the additional child tax credit.
The IRS says the law is vague on who is eligible for the child credit, so to be on the safe side they pay it out to illegal immigrants.
Backers argue that the children claimed for the child tax credit are likely U.S. citizens, even if their parents are here illegally, and so it would be unfair to strip the money.
In 2010, the government paid out $4.2 billion to illegal immigrants who claimed the child tax credit, the IRS’s inspector general found.
Again, blaming Obama and the Democrats is exactly what the GOP establishment wants you to keep doing. And keep voting for Republicans as they stand by, taking campaign cash from Amnesty-loving corporations, PACS and the Chamber of Commerce.
You’re being scammed. And you’re being scammed by the folks who are supposed to be stopping the scam.
