IRS: Illegal Immigrants Who Didn't Pay Taxes Could Get Refunds
Illegal immigrants who have never paid taxes can now claim tax refunds due to President Barack Obama’s executive action, the IRS commissioner admitted.
Commissioner John Koskinen said that no one bothered to ask what the tax implications of Obama’s sweeping action on illegal immigration could be.
About 7,000 undocumented workers pay taxes using a current taxpayer ID. Now, 7 million illegal immigrants can apply for work permits and Social Security numbers, making them automatically eligible for earned income tax credit.
Additionally, illegal immigrants using phony taxpayer IDs can now use new Social Security cards to get refunds for those years.
Koskinen said he doesn’t know how much the tax credit might cost because no one knows how many illegal immigrants might apply for it.
