Illegals Are Stealing Americans' Social Security Numbers. IRS Doing Jack Squat...
Most of us grimace when filling out a W-2 for a new job. Illegals have to do so much more. Like stealing social security numbers. The cornerstone to an American identity. Which means leftists are right: illegal hombres do work hard (see INSTANT KARMA: Illegals Skip Work for #ADayWithoutImmigrants. They Get Fired! and Narrative BUSTED: Survey Shows a Quarter of Illegal Minors are Gangsters…). Maybe when Democrats say "illegals DO pay taxes" they really mean bad hombres make taxes more taxing for Americanos:
Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday.
The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned.
That's putting it mildly. One never wants to deal with the IRS at any time. So imagine a taxpayer's consternation when the IRS asks them "How did you earn this?" and that poor schmuck has no way to explain it.
But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said in its report.
They can only identify half. Bear in mind, these same government bureaucrats want to run your healthcare. Just remember to floss.
Kenneth C. Corbin, commissioner of the IRS’s wage and investment division, said it has just completed a pilot program to figure out how to notify taxpayers they’re the victims of fraud.
But he said in most of the cases they’re missing right now, the Social Security number given is for someone who doesn’t have a tax account on their system. He said they can’t create a notification for someone who’s not in their files, and said because of privacy concerns they won’t just send a notification to the addresses listed.
Again, the same people who want to tell you how to manage your health. Try not to use that floss to hang yourself.
So, for privacy concerns, the IRS is refusing to notify Americans of privacy concerns like their social security number being used by illegal immigrants? Makes as much sense as painting with the product of a woman's monthly cycle. But feminists did that.
Illegal immigration is a problem in all facets of life. They're not the innocent fluff muffins Democrats have been trying (and failing) to convince us of since before Nancy Pelosi was sane. Sure, is it possible that some of the numbers these illegals are stealing are from Americans who're dead or deadbeats? Yes. Doesn't make it any less of a crime. Fraud is, after all, fraud. Illegal is illegal. Even if the person committing the crime makes a mean taco salad con queso.
If only the IRS cared about stolen identities as much as they are about squeezing every penny possible from American taxpayers. A penny saved is a government oversight. So long as the money keeps flowing into the IRS, their level of care for Americans ranks as high as escargot in the larvae stage.
