A new audit-report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) shows that the IRS sent at least 343 potentially fraudulent tax returns in 2011 to the same, single address in Shanghai, China, for a total of $156,533 in tax refunds.
The same report also shows that 655 potentially fraudulent tax refunds totaling $220,489 were sent to the same address in Kaunas, Lithuania. Other potentially fraudulent refunds, 580 of them, were sent to the same address in Orlando, Fla.; 355 to the same address in Lakewood, Colo; and another 291 to another single address in Orlando, Fla.
In total, those potentially fraudulent refunds totaled $2,715,391.

John Huang’s residuals?
Confucius say man who send money to China get Shangai`d
I would like to hear their explanation of how this happens.
So much for the IRS having software that crosschecks returns checking money paid out to money received. So I file a claim that says I overpaid. They don’t check the returns of those who overpaid me?
If you are going to be a crook, then “Go big, or go home.”
It would be very easy to establish a system that would spit out a report of every address that revieved, say, more than 10 refunds.
I suspect the IRS isn’t nearly as smart as they like us to think.
Heads should roll over this. I know, I know...
revieved = received
I don’t suppose they actually have any desire to do anything about this sort of fraud, instead they just think it’s cute to tell us about these silly little happenings.
I’ll bet the Chinaman won’t be paying his obamacare fine.
Shouldn’t multiple refunds to the same address have been automatically flagged for scrutiny? Oh,I almost forgot, this is the government, architect of Heathcare.gov.
My husband receives a pension from the government of Luxembourg. Once a year, he receives a letter requiring him to report to the local police station, show a photo id to prove who he is and therefore still alive and actually living at the address on his driver’s license and then get it notarized before returning it to Luxembourg.
He thinks that this perfectly reasonable.
Did you catch the report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration titled Substantial Changes Are Needed to the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number Program to Detect Fraudulent Applications? Theres an item contained in the report about 23,994 tax refunds for 2011 being issued to a single address in Atlanta Georgia? The total take here: $46,378,04. How about the 8,393 tax refunds that were sent to one bank account? Total damage: $236,747.
First thing that came to my mind was “I wonder if it found it’s way back to the DNC, or was loaned to the Fed”
Dollars to doughnuts one of the two happened.
I think people like that wouldn't be too hard to find in our bureaucracies run by political hacks and crooks.
Where the lion's share of the money winds up, who knows.
