In May of 2012, a concerned taxpayer approached Indianapolis NBC affiliate Investigative television reporter Bob Segall concerning a multibillion-dollar tax-fraud scheme that has been going on for several years — of which the IRS has done nothing.
Apparently, our “friends,” those illegal aliens whom our government is working so hard to provide amnesty for, have (naturally) found a way to “milk the tax system,” allowing them to receive multibillions of dollars in tax returns. By taking advantage of the “Additional Child Tax Credit,” which allows a fully-refundable credit of up to $1,000. per child, approximately two million illegal aliens (this year alone) have flooded tax preparers’ offices to file “income” taxes. Illegal aliens are not only claiming child dependents that live in “their” households in the U.S., but also for dependents living in Mexico — some tax returns even listing nieces and nephews. On one tax return submitted by an illegal alien, Segall noted that it showed an “income” of only $14,000, with a refund of over $10,300.!
“Under agreement not to reveal their identity or filming them face on, Segall of WTHR was able to speak with several of the illegal immigrants who, using Segall’s translator — confirmed it is easy.
One of the workers, who was interviewed at his [appeared to be a two-bedroom mobile home] in southern Indiana, admitted that four other illegal immigrants used his address to file tax returns — even though they don’t live there.
