Illegals Collecting Billions In Child Tax Credits

WRITTEN BY R. CORT KIRKWOODMONDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2011 10:31

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, illegal aliens are bilking the federal government for billions because they are filing fraudulent returns, and the sum is much higher than even a top group opposed to illegal immigration has estimated.

The Treasury reported in July that the Internal Revenue Servicecoughed up $4.2 billion in child tax credits for illegal aliens in 2010.

Given how nasty the IRS gets with taxpayers who err even honestly on their taxes, or those who do not err at all, observers note that the agency is rather insouciant about the indirect subsidy to those who aren’t supposed to be in the country.

Data

The Treasury reported that illegals are fraudulently using the Additional Child Tax Credit, which was created to give more money to taxpayers who cannot claim a full tax credit for children.

The question is how illegals get away with gaming the system. Answer: Because all wages, even those earned illegally, are taxed, but since  illegals cannot get valid Social Security numbers, the government needs a way to track their income and collect what is due. It does so using individual taxpayer identification numbers (ITINs), which, again, are for those taxpayers who cannot obtain a Social Security card.

These ITINs create the problem, and it’s a big one, according to the Treasury: The booty claimed by illegals using the ACTC has rocketed from $924 million in 2005 to $4.2 billion in 2010.

  1. No one has the backbone to bring this wholesale criminal activity to the forefront, if these tax cheaters are even sent a letter they will laugh it off. When any person in the political class goes after criminal activity by illegal immigrants they are pilloried by the MSM with false accusations of xenophobia and racism.
