An interesting thought on all this...do they know what to do with the data? Do they know how to ‘mine’ it? I am not so sure.
A huge scam that the IRS knows about and seems unable to stop is the bogus filing by prison inmates that results in their getting millions of dollars back in ‘refunds’. A few get caught. But the scam is so lucrative and the odds of getting caught are apparently low enough that it is worth the risk. And so what if a couple years are added to their sentance? No big deal. The IRS has not been able to stop this.
That all being said, the IRS has no business snooping into my business, nor anyone elses business with out cause, supportable by a judge issued search warrant. Just go to hell, IRS. Police your own first. And make sure all those non-filing Treasury and IRS people file...then do your audits on those returns.
Obama is filing with a bogus Social Security Number? Go after him.
The IRS is just another evil tool of foreign bankers who control the FED and our entire banking system.

There are also the cases of individuals claiming dependents (nieces & nephews) not even living with them — and getting away with it. Some claimed dependents even living out of the country if I recall correctly.
You are so right, they need to clean up their own house before they begin digging into mine.
