2.3 Million, That’s 2,300,000 Illegal Immigrants Received a Tax Refund

Posted on: April 2, 2013

Did you know that two million (2,300,000) illegal immigrants received a tax refund? That’s fine if two million paid taxes on their income but in fact many work for cash. Furthermore, they are claiming relatives that don’t even live here and the refunds total close to $4.2 Billion.

How do they do it? The IRS says everyone must file a tax return. Illegal immigrants are given an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. When they file they claim an Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) often for children living in a foreign country or across the border. Seventy-percent of the claims using the ITIN use the Additional Child Tax Credit. One tax preparer-whistleblower said they’d seen often as many as 10 and 12 dependent claims on a return.

The law says they have to file a return and the IRS doesn’t have the authority, since they are not citizens, to do anything about it.

By the way, that’s $1826 per refund if you average it out. Just thought you’d like to know.
