(INDIANAPOLIS) - Millions of illegal immigrants are getting a bigger tax refund than you.
Bob Segall, of WTHI reports finding a massive tax loophole that provides billions of dollars in tax credits to undocumented workers and, in many cases, people who have never stepped foot in the United States. And you are paying for it. I nside his central Indiana office, a longtime tax consultant sits at his desk, shaking his head in disbelief.
"There is not a doubt in my mind there's huge fraud taking place here," he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a tax return.
The tax preparer does not want you to know his name for fear of reprisal, but he does want you to know about a nationwide problem with a huge price tag.
He came to 13 Investigates to blow the whistle.
"We're talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that's taking place and no one is talking about it," he said.
The scheme involves illegal immigrants -- illegal immigrants who are filing tax returns.
How it works
The Internal Revenue Service says everyone who is employed in the United States - even those who are working here illegally - must report income and pay taxes. Of course, undocumented workers are not supposed to have a social security number. So for them to pay taxes, the IRS created what's called an ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. A 9-digit ITIN number issued by the IRS provides both resident and nonresident aliens with a unique identification number that allows them to file tax returns.
While that may have seemed like a good idea, it's now backfiring in a big way.

Mis amigos, mirada en esto.(1) When the GOP took the House back a Bill was introduced --- NO Child Tax Credit For Illegals --- and it went nowhere. I can't recall who the House member was that was its Sponsor, think he was a Tea Party newbie. And he got zero support from his fellow 'republicans'.
¡Gracias del DINERO LIBRE a los americanos estúpidos!
The biased one-sided press doesn't care - and their 'concern' is what pushes the machine.

The IRS cares if a conservative does something wrong. One standard for mass murderers (metaphorically) and one for jay walkers... Jay walkers are in BIG trouble is they screw up...
Thanks for the ping.
I agree-—vote-crazy pols are sucking up for illegal votes-—especially since each illegal votes several times under
multiple identities. But I have noticed the latino agenda is getting fainter and fainter-—when was the last time you heard the A-word (amnesty?)
Perry went downhill fast when found he gave in-state tuition to illegals-—even Texans did not know about it. Calling Americans who disagreed with him “heartless” did not help.
Not that Ohaha has not done his part-—and closer to election day, he’ll be on his knees giving latinos bj’s.
These refunds kill two birds with one stone: (1) vote buying and (2) redistribution of wealth.
