Did you even watch the report before you had this knee jerk reaction?THE IRS spells Theirs for a reason.....bunch of crooks, letting a bunch of crooks do their thing.
ITINs look different from SSNs as they all start with 9xx-xx-xxxxWhat is more interesting is the fact that I have had conversation about illegals not paying taxes and I have heard over and over that they use other's numbers to pay in. That no employer would hire without taking out the taxes, blah blah.
I now have a video to show them that might concern them a bit. But I am sure this only happens in Indiana.
yes i did.....and i'm not changing what i said.....did you watch the report?Did you even watch the report before you had this knee jerk reaction?
The crooks are the illegals exploiting a loophole that allows them to claim tax credits against their ITIN.
The IRS are crooks -- they are just incompetent idiots for allowing illegals to claim tax credits at all -- especially for unverifiable dependants in foreign countries.
I see no problem in forcing all illegals to pay taxes; they are using public services (like our roads and schools anyway) so they should pay in. I do see a problem in extending them tax credits though.
NOTE: There are differences in the tax code already between how they treat legal resident aliens (aka greencard holders) and citizens so there's way that they can claim such an exclusion would not be fair.
BTW, IIRC, unlike SSNs, ITINs all start with 900-999 so it would be QUITE easy to mine through the database and exclude tax credits from these individuals. Again, this is an example of the IRS being incompetent fools vs. being crooks.
THEY aren't pocketing the money -- the illegals exploiting the system are and we are paying for it. Of course, the IRS is claiming that they cannot act without efforts from Congress. So, instead of wasting time pissing and moaning about the GSA squandering $800K in Vegas, they should work quickly to stop-up this loophole.
What can you do?
* Write your congressman and ask them what they are doing to prevent this $4B fraud. Recommend that they simply exclude aliens (anyone with an ITIN) from claiming an Additional Child Tax Credit.
* Cite this report:
* Let's see what happens.
Perhaps this is semantics hereyes i did.....and i'm not changing what i said.....did you watch the report?
the irs knows what is going on, and not doing anything about it.......again, crooks.
I don't see why. Illegals can't vote anyway.If you think that the senate is going to do anything with this during an election year forget it! Even though I agree it's not an immigration issue, they'll turn it into one because they don't anger the Hispanic vote. As far as the IRS goes, they sure can catch me when I screw up and make me pay.
Well, according to this report, you could just claim 9 illegal alien dependents as well and cash $$$ in.I don't see why. Illegals can't vote anyway.
This really pisses me off.
When I'm working my ass of and filing my taxes honestly and they're pulling this sh!t and getting away with it.
You know that is a good question.So how much dinero do you have to make to have a 10k tax refund?
You are not going to get that much picking oranges and tomatoes.
You know that is a good question.
A long time ago I knew 2 fellas who claimed a bunch of kids.
- One actually had 13 loaded them up and went to show them. They were called down on it.
- The other I am not sure if he was ever called down but all we know is he left town rather quickly.
Person one didn't make much money and did in fact get a lot of money back. Was it more than he paid in, I am not sure. I've always been taught that you cannot go below zero and if he paid in 5000.00 how can he get back more than he paid in. But I think the clue here is tax credit back, not deductions for the children.
Person two made much more money and took the refund and ran. Now reason would say that this one should have just done it the honest way and continue to make money for the rest of his working life. We do not know the reason he did what he did.
I guess I will have to ask a tax professional that knows all the code.
While I believe you are trolling, I'll take the bait:Why don't you tell us how you realllly feel about "mexican" illegal immigrants??
sometimes I think it should. America needs to 'learn a lesson' because we got ourselves here. A lot of it comes from parenting. Absent parents = kids who don't give a crap about getting an eduation to get good paying jobs because there is always aid somehow.While I would be willing to pay more for items, if the price for everything went up by 20% there'd be riots in the streets.
