The IRS was never anyone’s favorite agency but it is now so corrupt and politicized, it not only targets opponents, it is charged with essentially rewriting law. The IRS allows illegal immigrants to file false tax returns with false identifying information as long as it’s for jobs and the IRS can collect taxes.
These are likely the same illegal immigrants who collect child tax credits and get all the money they paid into the system back when the year ends.
Senator Dan Coates of Indiana asked IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a Senate Finance Committee why the IRS is allowing illegal immigrants to use fraudulent W-2 information for the purpose of refunds.
“What we learned is that … the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that’s not really our job,” Coats said. “We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”
Koskinen made it clear that the IRS is helping the illegal immigrants break the law.
“What happens in these situations is someone is using a Social Security number to get a job, but they’re filing their tax return with their [taxpayer identification number].” What that means, he said, is that “they are undocumented aliens … . They’re paying taxes. It’s in everybody’s interest to have them pay the taxes they owe.”
Since they use the identity theft to get jobs, the IRS has unlawfully decided it isn’t identity theft.
“The question is whether the Social Security number they’re using to get the job has been stolen. It’s not the normal identity theft situation,” Koskinen said.
The IRS also doesn’t care if they are using the fraudulent identities of people they know. That’s apparently okay.
“There are questions about whether there’s a way we could simply advise people… . A lot of the time those Social Security numbers are borrowed from friends and acquaintances and they know they’ve been used, other times they don’t.”
