IRS employees are getting some $70 MILLION in bonuses (forbidden bonuses via unenforced Presidential Executive Order) after sending over $52,000,000.00 ($52 MILLION) to four Atlanta, Georgia addresses. On single address received $46,378,040.00 of the $52 MILLION. The payments were made to illegal aliens – thousands of illegal aliens all applying to the IRS from four addresses. Awareness isn’t coming only from an Inspector General. Whistleblowers went to Congress. How much of the $70 MILLION in IRS bonuses do you think they’ll receive? Do they still have their jobs?
That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.
The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth. Source: Fox Nation
A Treasury Department Inspector General first reported on the criminal actions in 2011, and the reports just keep coming, yet nothing is done to stop it. How many illegal aliens aligned with the Tea Party movement do you think receive illegal IRS payments?
Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877.
Since 1996, the IRS has issued what it calls Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to two classes of persons: 1) non-resident aliens who have a tax liability in the United States, and 2) aliens living in the United States who are “not authorized to work in the United States.”
The IRS has long known it was giving these numbers to illegal aliens, and thus facilitating their ability to work illegally in the United States. For example, the Treasury Inspector General’s Semiannual Report to Congress published on Oct. 29, 1999—nearly fourteen years ago—specifically drew attention to this problem…
TIGTA said there were 154 addresses around the country that appeared on 1,000 or more ITIN applications made to the IRS.
Legal U.S. residents responsible for this should take the perp walk and spend serious time in jail. The IRS has done all possible to keep Conservatives from receiving tax exempt status, in some cases auditing them personally for no reason – making their lives hell.
In 2012, some IRS employees went to Congress to try to stop the issuing of illegal and fraudulent Individual Tax Identification Numbers ( ITINs). No info on what happened to those whistleblowers. I’d like to know whom in Congress they gave their information. I’m betting these courageous whistleblowers are receiving none of the $70 MILLION in IRS bonuses…more likely they lost their jobs or were demoted to the mailroom. Graphic courtesy of SodaHead
