IRS Sent $46 Million in Tax Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens — All at the SAME Address...

"IRS Sent $46 Million in Tax Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens — All at the SAME Address in Atlanta" The IRS sent more than $46 million in tax refunds to 23,994 “unauthorized” alien workers who all listed the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to an audit report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

However, the Atlanta address that received millions of dollars in refunds was not the only address apparently housing thousands of “unauthorized” aliens. In fact, it wasn’t even the only address in Atlanta that was claiming such a situation.

I heard about this yesterday, and am still stunned that a computer/agent somewhere didn’t catch this when more than 100 checks went to the same address. Isn’t there some kind of “red flag threshold” for something like that? Apparently not.

Why do republicans act like this is suspicious?

Our undocumented immigrant guests often share homes to be frugal, a traditional American value. Further, because of republican obstructions, it’s difficult for them to rent a home, forcing them to share living space even more than they might want to on their own.

For a good-sized 2400 square foot home, this is only ten people per square foot. That’s not unreasonable if you consider that they may be working different shifts at their jobs that Americans won’t do. Throw in the fact that they can always sleep in tents in the yard, tree houses, and bunk beds, and this becomes entirely doable.

[After that post, if I can demonstrate an ability to target Dear Leader’s enemies and to handle firearms irresponsibly, I’m guaranteed an IRS job.]

This is something likely organized by the IRS under Obama. There’s no way you could have 23,000 people stop by the house to pick up their checks unless their were IRS agents sitting in the house distributing them, along with some armed guards. There’s something else going on here. This may be an undercover welfare system set up by Obama where illegals get taxpayer money as phony ‘refunds’.

There was when I filed for the adoption credit - after I submitted the paperwork through my tax preparer - I had to fax the same paperwork and talk to an IRS employee 3 times just to make sure I got my refund check...I did - but had I not stayed on top of it - logged the calls and wrote names and times down — I doubt it would have happened — the IRS made it absolutely chaotic and stressful...

And these are the very same blooming idiots at IRS who will be auditing your for compliance with ObamaDeath. This is going to work out so well.

I bet within a year....every single IRS form is published in Spanish. They will eventually create an entire division....made up of only illegals....and run by a illegal who attends White House meetings but only speaks Spanish to the President when asked questions.

You’re right. 23,000+ checks being distributed, even 100 at a time, would draw a lot of attention, unless it were a sports stadium.

“...undercover welfare system set up by Obama where illegals get taxpayer money as phony ‘refunds’...”, sounds about right.

“The TIGTA audit report, published last year at the request of members of Congress, revealed 10 addresses in the U.S. that were issued anywhere from 1,846 to 23,994 tax refunds each. Four of those 10 addresses were located in Atlanta.

CNSNews.com breaks down the report:

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877...”

What a scam and what a bloody disgrace. This is beyond the pale!!! And they’re getting bonus’s!!!

Someone at the IRS probably lived at that address.

I remember some guy who was a delivery driver called into Mark Levin and said he had to deliver a box of hundreds of Obamaphones to one apartment.

Our government is probably more corrupt now than any nation on Earth.

$46 million used to be a lot of money. These days the government talks about billions of dollars as if they are speaking about pocket change.

Maybe it’s time the American people shut off the spigot. Maybe it is time for another Tea Party.

The key is to deal with them as little as possible, but in cases like yours, you have no choice but to keep an accurate paper trail. 65-70% of the scum who now work for the IRS (and far too many Fed agencies) are AA/EEOC hires and don’t have a discernible brain. They just fill chairs and quotas.

Funny you say that...which reminded me...when I would call in - it sounded like those tell-a-markers - the noise in the background of people talking - phones ringing — etc...I thought to myself, “Did I call the right number?” “Or are these the same people calling me about switching credit cards or trying to sell me some stupid eco-cleaner?”

I suspicious at first - but I got my check...but there are some that probably gave up - which is what Obama was hoping for...he likes to give “Big Boy” speeches - but there’s always an underhanded motivation afterwards...

Back when I was in business with my Family Farm, we had to call the IRS for something, and the background noise sounded like one of those mass-call centers for a robo-call product. It was deafening, and the idiot on the phone had to switch us over to other depts/agents to get it handled; she was totally incompetent. It was a 2hr waste of time. I used to let our corp CPA handle it after that.

Maybe the term "skimming" would be appropriate here.

I've heard of cramped accommodations but that's ridiculous.This reminds me of a recent incident here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts.In the spring of last year the welfare department sent a letter to every welfare recipient in the state encouraging them to register to vote.I didn't get one but then the state only knows me as a taxpayer and the owner/operator of a properly registered and insured car and as a properly licensed driver.A reporter found out later that something like 40,000 of those letters came back as "address unknown" or "addressee unknown".When asked about it our Governor,Osama Obama's pal during their community organizing days together in Chicago,said that that was "just an anecdote".

I’m guessing the SEIU

From article:
Perhaps the most remarkable act of the IRS was this: It assigned 6,411 ITINs to unauthorized aliens presumably using a single address in Morganton, North Carolina. According to the 2010 Census, there were only 16,681 people in Morganton.

I think you are on to something...on a whim I checked if there was a SEIU office in Morganton...there sure is...

There are no coincidences...

They were hoping you would give up so the agent could send the check to himself.

I still have the letters and paperwork filed away - just in case - they say there was an error and reach into my bank account and seize funds from me...which I think is a total Nazi tactic! I wonder how many people that filed and were entitled for this credit didn’t get the initial letter...they only had 30 days to respond and get the paper work in...after 30 days if the IRS did not CONFIRM they got the paperwork - then the person was SOL...sounds like a scam set of regulations....I didn’t stop until I got that letter...it was like day 20 when I was confirmed...pretty sad state of affairs....
