...the Additional Child Tax Credit...
...a fully-refundable credit of up to $1000 per child..
...claiming the tax credit for kids who live in Mexico...
...sometimes 10 or 12 nieces and nephews...
These are thieves taking advantage of the lack of enforcement of the rules.
Why do the reporters refer to these fraudulent returns as taking advantage of a “tax loophole”?
There is no “loophole”.
Is it politically incorrect to call a crook a crook?
These are Federal FELONIES. Every instance, in addition to creating ITINs for children (if they even exist) in Mexico. The Feds could send the refunds out certified mail, arrest the illegals when they sign for them, and put them away for 10 years - automatic. Instead they PAY THEM!
