(CNSNews.com) - The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).


That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report (http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/auditreports/2012reports/201242081fr.pdf) published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

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.

Since 1996, the IRS has issued what it calls Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to two classes of persons: 1) non-resident aliens who have a tax liability in the United States, and 2) aliens living in the United States who are “not authorized to work in the United States.”

The IRS has long known it was giving these numbers to illegal aliens, and thus facilitating their ability to work illegally in the United States. For example, the Treasury Inspector General’s Semiannual Report to Congress (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/sites/default/files/documents/TIGTA-SEMIANNUAL%20REPORT%20TO%20CONGRESS-OCTOBER%201999.pdf) published on Oct. 29, 1999—nearly fourteen years ago—specifically drew attention to this problem.

“The IRS issues Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to undocumented aliens to improve nonresident alien compliance with tax laws. This IRS practice seems counter-productive to the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s (INS) mission to identify undocumented aliens and prevent unlawful alien entry,” TIGTA warned in that long-ago report.

A simple solution: From here on in, any illegal alien applying for a refund has to put "Tea Party" in their name. Then the IRS will scrutinize them to the point of paralysis.

When it furthers a narrative, it's legal.

I wonder if the addresses were homes, businesses, or some other type of buildings.


I'm pretty sure a mail carrier would get suspicious of a bunch of tax documents and/or refunds coming to one house, but with hundreds of different names on them.

Maybe if they vetted this out instead of harassing conservative groups we'd have an answer. Ever think about that?

Probably an ACORN headquarters. But the critical thing is that "The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address."

That's the beauty of electronic filing. All of those transfers were done via direct deposit. Someone needs to check if the routing numbers for the accounts were the same.

Or maybe they don't want us to have an answer. For that many illegals to file returns from one address, there had to be a concerted effort by someone with the capability to file 23,994 electronic tax forms. That means that this was done by more than one person. They probably used the same address because they also used the same address for the bank account that they supplied for the illegals, and bet that nobody at the IRS would have noticed that the routing numbers were the same. The transfers were done electronically. I was joking when I said that it was an ACORN headquarters above, but the more that I think about it, the more likely it is that this is one of their scams.
