IRS Uncovers 1.2 Million Cases of Identity Theft by Illegal Aliens (Details)
Guest post by John S. Roberts at Right Observer:
The Internal Revenue Service has uncovered over one million cases of identity theft by illegal immigrants.
Think about that for a second.
The Internal Revenue Services documented over 1.2 million cases of illegal immigrants filing tax returns with illegitimate social security numbers in 2017, CNSNews.com reports.
“We identified 1,227,579 electronically filed tax returns, processed in FY 2017 through April 18, 2017, in which the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number on the return does not match the Social Security Number on the Form W-2,” the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration told CNSNews.com
“Note that a Social Security Number may have been used on Form W-2 for more than one of these returns.”
More from CNS News:
TIGTA, which is the inspector general responsible for overseeing the IRS, discovered another approximately 1.2 million cases in 2017 in which an illegal alien working in the United States had filed a tax return reporting wages that had been earned using a Social Security Number that belonged to someone else or was fabricated.
Yet the IRS also could not say whether it referred any of these cases for criminal prosecution.[…]
Using a stolen or fake Social Security Number is a felony.
Yet another reason why America needs a wall on the border.
And Democrats want to keep protecting these criminals, huh?
