This is unbelievable. No wonder our country’s going broke!
The IRS allows one to claim a $1,000 per child under the Child Tax Credit. This is good and especially with todays economy. But here’s the kicker! Due to a loophole, illegal immigrants are claiming up to 12 children, and the children live in Mexico. Adding insult to injury, some of the children they list aren’t even their own children. They include nieces and nephews.
It has even been reported that as many as 4 illegals using the same address have claimed as many as 20 some, receiving as much as $29,000 in tax-payer money.
IRS Statement on Tax Loophole:
“The law has been clear for over a decade that eligibility for these credits does not depend on work authorization status or the type of taxpayer identification number used…The IRS administers the law impartially and applies it as written.”
This is costing the American tax-payer over $4 Billion a year!
The IRS says they know about this, but………..they don’t discriminate. WHAT?
If an American citizen did this, they would be prosecuted. I call that DISCRIMINATION, Don’t You?
