Because of Amnesty, the IRS Will Now Perform a Special Favor for Illegals that Will Cost You Big Time
American Prosperity News Network
Just like like the God-awful Affordable Care Act, Obama’s Executive Order to give millions of illegals amnesty is packed full of hidden surprises. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen only recently told Congress illegals would not be getting refunds. But in what seems to be an unexpected “change of mind,” he informed Congress the opposite is true.
It’s been revealed by the IRS illegals who are offered amnesty will be entitled to a refund… even though they didn’t pay taxes. For years illegals have robbed the taxpayers of tax money through special government programs for illegals, but now, because of Obama’s executive order, they’re going to be getting even more of your tax dollars.
All of this will happen when the illegal aliens are given new Social Security numbers as provided by the Obama administration.
You can be sure with this policy in effect there’s going to be yet another call for higher taxes to help cover the expense.
Koskinen said the President didn’t consult the IRS about the ripple effects of his amnesty policy.
Well, that doesn’t come as much of a surprise. After years saying he wasn’t a king, and didn’t have the authority to pass legislation, Obama went ahead and usurped power from the congress and got what he wanted by means of executive order.
House Republicans (who seem to be the only ones with fortitude these days) have resisted the executive order. Republican members from Ohio even penned a letter and sent it to Obama protesting his move.
“While we may disagree about whether your deferred action programs were lawfully created and implemented, we are confident that we can all agree that these programs cannot be permitted to impair the integrity of our election,” they wrote.
And this will really tick people off… Koskinen has even hinted illegals will be able to file for back-credits. As The Washington Times writes:
He also clarified his testimony to the Senate last week, where he acknowledged illegal immigrants who had paid taxes using substitute Social Security numbers but who gain real Social Security numbers when they are approved for the amnesty can apply for back-refunds of the Earned Income Tax Credit.
On Wednesday, he said even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to apply for back-credits once they get Social Security numbers.
The EITC is a refundable tax credit, which means those who don’t have any tax liability can still get money back from the government.
Under the new program, if you get a Social Security number and you work, you’ll be eligible to apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit,” Mr. Koskinen said.
He said that would apply even “if you did not file” taxes, as long as the illegal immigrant could demonstrate having worked off-the-books during those years.
The insanity of it all boggles the mind.
With as many as 4 million illegals expected to be covered by the amnesty order, and with the average credit being $500-$600 you can be sure every single dime of that money will come out of your federal taxes.
It’s just one more illegal and unconstitutional program you and every other red-blooded American is being forced to pay against your will.
Yet again Obama has defied his oath of office and the American people suffer because of his illegal activity.
