A massive fraud, condoned by the IRS. Imagine how fast the IRS would punish and fine a citizen for an infraction on their tax forms.

Meanwhile non citizens reap huge rewards for filing false returns.

A few BILLION wasted and now they are begining to notice?

And yet no one in D.C. seems to have the will to change this. Unbelievable, absolutely unelievable!

I thought it was a crime to put fake dependants on your 1040. I have to put a SS number for each of my kids.

Why is it "legal" to claim additional children on a fed tax form for a "Tax Credit". The children residing outside of the United States. And then get a whopping tax refund for these children? A huge benefit for the non citizen.

$9000.00 avg per fraudulent return? All ignored by the IRS, and the Fed Gov??

They're using the IRS issued ITIN numbers for their tax returns.

You must be a citizen taxpayer. The non citizen uses a ITIN number and is allowed to reap huge refunds for the additional child tax credit. The children do not even reside in the United States.

It has only cost you 4.4 Billion dollars of your tax dollars each year and it is escalating.

The ITIN guy claims 20,000.00 in income then the fed gives him back a tax credit for all the additional children listed. The returns cited in the report were as high as a 29,000.00 REFUND to the ITIN filer.

Wondering why there is a 15 Trillion dollar debt??

What do you suppose the IRS would do to a citizen pulling this scam?

One report had 20 different kids living at the same address, a two bedroom trailer! I'd lay odds that few if any of these "kids" even exist. If I get audited my tax preparer can be brought into an IRS hearing and not by choice either. Pull the preparerers in and let them tap dance in front of the IRS.

They say the remittances home to MX are a big plus to the MX economy. So are "imaginary kids" IMO.
