Drug raid uncovers massive tax fraud scheme (illegal immigrants filing taxes)
Gadsden Times (AL) ^ | 2/5/10 | Lisa Rogers

An income tax fraud scheme discovered during a drug raid Thursday night is expected to lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal tax refunds.

“I wouldn’t be surprised it went into the millions,” Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said during a news conference Friday.

Agents went to a mobile home on Sligo Road, just off Egypt Road in the Rockledge community, Thursday night to raid a suspected methamphetamine distribution ring and discovered more evidence than expected in the tax scheme.

It would be sweet if there were an ACORN connection.

I would make copies of everything before I handed anything to anyone.

SEIU aka ACORN is the illegal alien union.

Illegal aliens - committing crimes Americans will not do. Unreal.

There are those on Free Republic who defend illegals here.

They are all freaking crazy.

Tax fraud by anyone - legal citizen or not - should not be tolerated.

We can argue how lenient immigration policy should be, but it is wrong just to nod and wink while drug addled foreigners waltz in with their stashes without even asking our permission.

Nope. I’m currently unemployed, and I had to pay my damn tax bill (owed) of 8K to the Feds and another 2K to the state.

Meanwhile, people who shouldn’t be here, and citizens who are fraudulently profiting, are getting away with it.

I read somewhere, a four year-old got a tax credit for a house. I didn’t know a four year-old could sign a contract.

Head of household status and EIC is abused by large numbers of legals also.

Illegals should be sent back to home country immediately (these should be getting prison time first).

so much for wanting to become productive members of society - pillage and plunder seems more the rule

Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit Commander Rob Savage said investigators have not found any homes listed as purchased on the returns that even exist.

“One was the address of a vacant lot,” he said.

And we wonder why the government deliberately creates such immense loopholes with no accountability?

Could our Dear Leaders be writing these laws this way on purpose?

This of course would be the ‘documented’ illegal documents seized from the undocumented aliens (illegals) which are linked to tax fraud and the burden they may place on the legal citizens of this country. It does not scrape the surface of the amount of ‘undocumented’ fraud which is committed by the undocumented aliens (illegals) through health and other social service/community programs.

District Attorney Jimmie Harp gave an example of one tax return in which a person believed to be in the U.S. illegally made $6,000 last year and got a $13,000 refund using the tax credit.

Those anchor babies sure come in handy.

I'm so glad these poor illegals can benefit from my handing over $50,000 to the government every year.

And this is just one town in one county in one state. Your tax dollars at work.

1 Make up name

2 Make up SS number

3 Get job

4 Claim 6-7 dependants

5 Pay practically nothing in taxes

6 Get it all back in April

7 Get $1,500 Earned Income Tax Credit check from gubberment (us) on top of 100% refund.

Return to step 1.

“Cloward and Piven were radical Columbia professors in the 1960s who believed in “change” and “social justice.” Inspired by the riots in Los Angeles in 1965, they wrote and published their article which outlined the best way to bring the kind of Saul Alinsky-type social change to America. In their estimation, it was to overwhelm the system and bring about the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with impossible demands and bring on economic collapse.”

One of the primary “community services” provided by ACORN is tax filing assistance. A Republican controlled congressional investigation would probably uncover hundreds of millions in fraudulent returns

The War On Drugs accidentally did something useful. We now return you to your regularly scheduled inflating of drug profits and directing of same into criminal pockets.
