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.
I’m not blaming Obama, the IRS or Democrats in general here. They’re telling us what they want and they’re delivering on those promises. I blame Republicans who say they’re against illegal immigration – but are a bunch of scheming, lying turncoats. The GOP has enabled this entire operation because their benefactors want cheap labor.
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.
