Is the IRS paying millions to illegal workers, or is the IRS paying millions to the employers of illegal workers who know how to work the system.

It's paying illegal immigrants in the form of refundable credits - have $100 withheld and get a 'refund' of $8,000

we are a joke of a country, progressives in both parties are to blame

the only joke in this country, is that it don't matter who you vote for anymore, especially thanks to citizens united, because all of our elected officials have tons of money from big business in their campaigns. You can't say that won't sway your opinions.

In this day and age of leaks and seeps, why am I not surprised that a news organization has our bloody tax refund information. I did not know this was public record.

Don't worry, they will do much better with enforcing the Affordable Health Care act.

That's chump change...

Q: Does the IRS pay billions in tax refunds to workers who are in the U.S. illegally?

A: Yes. The Treasury Department’s Inspector General determined that $4.2 billion was paid in 2010, up from less than $1 billion in 2005. Leading Democrats are resisting a bill that would stop future payments.

The video highlights a news investigation by Channel 13, WTHR in Indianapolis, regarding fraudulent refunds of taxpayer money to illegal immigrants living in the US. The refunds are based on child tax credits, when the kids live in Mexico or elsewhere.

That's not an "oversight" that's Chicago style politics.. that's 23,994 votes. Not to worry though. we can get the 10% to pay for it.

??? They can't vote if they're not citizens???
07:09 PM on 06/24/2013
Probably more.. extended family also gets to weigh in for all the largesse. Hey, who's really watching right? This is why Democrats oppose voter registration. Funny thing is, you have to provide ID to get into a federal bulding, apply for benefits.. but somehow showing ID is too burdensome? See if you get SNAP cards without it.

they are not required to prove they are citizens to vote, remember no picture ID required

Meanwhile, on the Snowden thread, libs are arguing that the government is good with data.

Does anybody here know?;

-how many schoolbooks can you buy with $46,000,000?
-how many people "dying in the streets"* can you save with $46,000,000?

The money IS there, libs. No need for higher taxation.

*gotta love lib drama.
