Several weeks ago, I posted Revealed: Tax Loophole Providing Billions To Illegal Immigrants which contained the initial Bob Segall report as well as his first follow up report. Both noted the billions in tax money flowing to illegal immigrants through a loophole and associated identity theft and document fraud. About a week ago, WTHR’s Segall presented yet another follow-up report from the perspective of IRS employees (IRS workers OK “phony” documents from illegal immigrants). They note the current IRS policy on the matter…it isn’t good:
The IRS continues to ignore the Treasury’s inspector general. Your only recourse is to contact your representative and ask them to support Rep. Burton’s HR1956. As the IRS worker states: “…this needs to be stopped.”
On local note related to child identity theft and illegal immigrants, here is the latest on Jennifer Andrusko in an NPR interview entitled: Identity Theft: ‘Kids Don’t Know They’re Victims’. You’ll recall Andrusko was inexplicably included by Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to announce a credit freeze measure that gives parents a false sense of security.
