Skip to comments.IRS powerless to stop tax scam costing billions each year
Posted on 05/20/2016 2:31:59 PM PDT by T Ruth
The Inspector General for the IRS said Thursday that the tax collection agency continues to be at risk of paying out billions of dollars in fraudulent Earned Income Tax Credit payments each year, and that there's nothing the IRS can do about it.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released a report that said almost 25 percent of EITC payments issued last year should not have been issued. That amounts to $15.6 billion in payments under a program that's meant to boost low and moderate-income people and families.

If 25% of the payouts are fraudulent, the only reasonable action is to repeal the EIC.
IRS powerless to stop this scam? What a lie. Its an income redistribution scheme.
The IRS itself is a tax-scam.
That would be too easy! The pervert-in-chief wouldn’t sign it.
I bet if it came out of the IRS salaries they’d find a way to stop int in weeks, if not days.
Then fire the sob and shut down the IRS until it can be audited. Fire ALL extraneous personnel and rip the phone lines out and sell all the furniture and computers.
The IRS is an agency full of corruption and evil!
Powerless.................Liars. Redistribution of wealth.
No resources to stop a multi billion dollar scam. Yet the IRS seemed to have plenty of resources to audit conservative groups.
But by God if you put the wrong miles driven they will find you and prosecute you.
Nothing more government and more money can’t fix.
Just tell all IRS critters they are docked 1% of their salaries until a way is figured out how to stop this scam. Those greedy lazy critters will have this problem fixed within days or weeks. All because they are being "robbed" of 1% of their salaries. They care when they get robbed but could care less when the American people are getting robbed via the EITC

Meaning more like 35-40% are fraudulent and are going to illegal aliens and legal immigrants from Mexico etc

BS. They want your personal information before they will stop it.
just a fancy on-going democratic party voter drive.....
More vote buying.
It's a reparations scheme. Just another facet of the overall Obama smash-and-grab looting that started with Pigford.
HHS already knows which children are in need. Terminate the program as part of the IRS. To obtain the credit, fill out a separate application to submit to state level HHS, which will include each child’s social security number, name of school (in America) the child attends, letter from school/HeadStart program attesting the child is has been reviewed for and is eligible for free lunch programs, (alternately, letter from pastor for homeschooled children), physical address of each child and each child’s parent(s) as well as the parent/caretaker’s social security number.
Take the fraudulent payments out of the retirement funds set aside for IRS employees.
"That would be too easy! The pervert-in-chief wouldnt sign it."
Its good to see patriots pointing the finger at corrupt Congress.
Note that not only have the states never delegated to the feds, expressly via the Constitution, the specific power to make vote-winning laws to redistribute wealth, Congress arguably redistributing state revenues that it stole with unconstitutional federal taxes, but even though Congress has the constitutional authority to override an Obama veto of a bill to repeal this law (1.7.2), I dont see corrupt Congress doing so.
Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States. Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
Remember in November !
When patriots elect Trump, they also need to elect a new, state sovereignty-respecting Congress that will not only work within its constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers to support Trumps vision for America, but also put a stop to unconstitutional federal taxes as evidence by redistribution of stolen state revenues.
Note the such a Congress will also probably be willing to fire state sovereignty-ignoring activist justices.
Trump will stop the scam
“the IRS doesn’t have the resources to police the fraudulent payments.”
Too busy undermining conservative 501 c 3’s.
I’d ask the idiot:
Q - Remind us how much is lost to this fraud?
A - $15.6 Billion
Q - And why can’t you stop it?
A - The IRS doesn’t have the resources to police the fraudulent payments.
Q - Remind us how much is lost to this fraud?
Rinse & Repeat until the embarrassment sets in.
