This story is so outrageous that it's almost hard to believe it's true. But sadly it is.
The IRS 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.
That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to an 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.
Just unbelievable! Our government has gotten too big and too bloated. How come the IRS can't focus on fixing a problem as monumental as this, rather than targeting political conservatives who apply for tax exempt status?
