Since their jobs aren’t legal, illegal immigrants don’t pay taxes. In a truly horrifying move, however, Obama has now found a loophole that will allow illegals to get a tax refund.
Forbes reported that IRS Chairman John Koskinen revealed illegal aliens can now claim up to three years of Earned Income Tax Credit refunds despite the fact that they don’t even pay taxes. According to Conservative Tribune, illegals will just need a Social Security number to claim the refund. Though they aren’t supposed to have a SSN, the IRS apparently doesn’t consider it their job to enforce identity theft laws.
“The recipe goes like this,” Forbes wrote. “First, get a Social Security number, then claim the Earned Income Tax Credit for the last three years. Then, wait for the IRS to send you three years of tax refunds. The gambit could apparently work even if you never paid taxes, never filed a return, and worked off the books. And the IRS says this is the way the Earned Income Tax Credit works.”
Sadly, this has quietly been going on for years. A 2011 audit showed that illegal immigrants claimed $4.2 billion in fraudulent tax credit that year.
Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican who is chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, spoke out to slam Obama’s IRS for this move.
“John Koskinen’s got a lot of explaining to do,” Jordan told Fox News‘ Greta Van Susteren in an interview.
“It’s unfair to taxpayers that noncitizen illegals are gonna get this bonus that … their tax money’s gonna be used for,” Jordan continued, adding that it “points to the patent unfairness” of Obama’s plan, both for American taxpayers and the immigrants who actually have come to this country legally.
It’s sickening that Obama is once again putting illegal immigrants ahead of REAL Americans. SHARE this story if you want Obama OUT of the White House!
