Millions of illegal immigrants are getting a bigger tax refund than you. Eyewitness News shows 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!

INDIANAPOLIS - Inside 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.

Looks like these are fraudulent filings, unless these kids have American social security numbers too. You have to enter a child's ssn to claim as a dependent.
No, it’s more likely that now that the press has supported the most liberal candidate in the primaries they will switch to the most liberal candidate in the general.
The newspeak should outrage us as well: undocumented workers = illegal aliens
Naw, people are too busy watching American Idol, The Kardashians, and posting on Facebook 24/7 to care about what the government steals from them.
There's really no "loop hole" involved. The criminal Mexicans are simply breaking the law. It isn't allowable for citizens to claim children who don't live with them either.
The IRS should crack down on these criminals with jail terms and then deportation.
If they are so brazen in claiming nieces and nephews in Mexico don’t try to convince me that they wouldn’t vote illegally.
Thanks Beave Meister.
Gosh, I guess we’ll be needing that VAT after all...
With the billions of dollars that are wired to Mexico every year by fraudulently documented workers illegally in this nation, I have no doubt that at least SOME of them supplement their living expenses in Uncle Sam’s house by receiving public assistance AFTER they have sent undeclared wages to another nation. Money that they COULD have lived on themselves.
Dimocrats are so proud. Their destruction of Amerika is working.
It must be once a week that some other worshiper publishes something against the anointed marxist. The tide is slowly turning. I'm a little encouraged.
File, get the EITC, and get more back than you paid in! What's not to like?
I think that is pretty likely, actually.
Moderator. Any chance this could be re-posted to Breaking News?
I'm flabbergasted that this is not receiving more attention.
