I always find it amazing that the conservative right demonizes illegal immigrants, complaining of how much of a parasite they are on our society, but they never mention the people/industries that hire them and make a pretty penny exploiting them.
What's more interesting is these businesses claim they will go out of business if they can't do things off the books.

Only a clueless Rethug would begrudge a refund to taxpayers because they weren't "authorized" to pay taxes but paid them anyways. Guess she thinks it would be moral to just keep their money.

Interesting report, which I'm pretty sure you haven't read, only copied some conservative talking points

so from the little I've read, there has been a problem with the process since its inception in 1996 (Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress and enacted the change to the tax code)

upon complaints by 2 IRS employees, the IRS launched an investigation.

the number of ITIN's being turned down has increased since CY 2008

the IG reported there are serious problems
7 of the 9 recommendations of the report have been adopted by the IRS.

so what have we learned

there is a problem with the tax code, has been since 1996. nothing was done to fix the problem until the Obama administration.

BTW, I wouldn't give credit to the White House politicians for correcting the problem, I'll bet is the career bureaucrats....

oh, and I'm pretty sure the same problem was happening under the Bush administration, only they failed to investigate it

Pa. woman sues McDonald's store owners over prepaid debit card used for wages
Natalie Gunshannon worked at a Shavertown, Pa., McDonald's location when she learned that the franchise required employees to accept payment on a J.P. Morgan Chase payroll card. But the card, she contends, imposes fees on virtually every transaction, creating a monetary and physical barrier to her hard-earned cash.

Natalie Gunshannon holds a copy of a lawsuit filed by her attorneys against a McDonald’s franchise owner. The single mother, who worked briefly at a northeastern Pennsylvania franchise, said she was suing the owners after she was given a fee-laden debit card and told that she must use it to access her earnings.

She asked for paper - but all they offered was plastic.

A Pennsylvania woman is now suing the McDonald's franchise that refused to pay her by check and instead insisted on employees using payroll debit cards.

"I'm looking for the pay I am owed and for them to understand there has to be an option," Natalie Gunshannon, 27, told the Citizen's Voice newspaper.

Gunshannon worked less than a month at the Shavertown McDonald's location when she learned that the franchise required employees to accept payment on a J.P. Morgan Chase payroll card. But the card, she contends, imposes fees on virtually every transaction, creating a monetary and physical barrier to her hard-earned cash. Among the costs, according to her lawsuit:$1.50 for an ATM withdrawal,$5 for over-the-counter cash withdrawals and $1 to check the balance. There's even a charge to pay a bill online or if the card is lost or stolen.

"When they work hard and earn their wages, why should they have to pay fees to collect their rightful wages?" her attorney, Mike Cefalo, told the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader.

Gunshannon, a single mother, made $7.44 an hour during her three weeks at the fast-food chain. Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Coupled with the fees, Gunshannon says she was not making enough money. And when she asked to be paid another way, the franchise's owner allegedly told her the card was the only option.

"I need to receive all the money I earn," she said. "I can't afford to lose even a few dollars per paycheck. I just think people should be paid fairly and not have to pay fees to get their wages."....

Here is the dirty little secret.

If your employer offers you a qualified plan and you decline, you can still buy insurance on the exchange, but you are ineligible for any subsidy, regardless of income.

The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
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.

<quoted text> The 'tax credits' go to the insurance company not the policy holder.
Do People Have to Take the Premium Tax Credit in Advance?
No. Most people likely will want to get the credit in advance because they wouldn’t be able to pay
their monthly health insurance premiums upfront. However, if they choose, people can wait and
receive the credit when they file their taxes. However, the credit is only available for months in
which people are enrolled in a health plan offered in their state’s marketplace.

What Happens When People Who Get a Credit in Advance File Their Taxes?
The amount of the advance premium tax credits that people receive is based on an estimate of the
income the household expects for the year. The final amount of the credit is based on their actual
income as reported on the tax return for the year the advance payment was received.

Sure seems like there will be fraud with this program. The IRS can't even figure out that they paid million to illegals--they are never going to get this right.

On the other hand, many such employees lack the ability to cash a check without paying significant check-cashing fees and would prefer a debit card.

Many employers today pay only by direct deposit and offer no option. Payroll checks are a thing of the past, too expensive to process.

Got a problem with that?

Paul Ryan. Wisconsin. He has been trying to get this crap cut for two years.
This week, Representative Paul D. Ryan, Republican of Wisconsin and the chairman of the House Budget Committee, told reporters,“We shouldn’t be giving corporate farms, these large agribusiness companies, subsidies. I strongly believe that.”

His budget proposal would take $30 billion out of the farm program over the next decade.

Representative Eric Cantor, Republican of Virginia and the majority leader, attended the first session of debt-limit negotiations on Thursday with a list of areas where he saw a potential agreement between Republicans and the White House, including farm subsidies.

Conservative members of Congress would gladly vote for across-the-board spending cuts, including elimination of all tax credits and subsidies.

Of course, that would include eliminating the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Obamacare premium subsidy, as well as the tax credits and subsidies that you dislike.
