Tax Administration IG: IRS sent over $46 million in refunds to thousands of ‘unauthorized’ aliens at the same address in Atlanta

Understatement of the decade: The 2012 Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration report that the maddening information below comes from is entitled “Substantial Changes Are Needed to the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number Program to Detect Fraudulent Applications.” Gee, ya don’t say:

(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 occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report 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.

There’s a lot more to the story here if your stomach can take it. Taxpayers are being fleeced. Or maybe those were addresses where IRS workers went to pick up their annual bonus checks.

Atlanta must have some of the most exhausted and uninquisitive postal delivery people in the country, unless these were direct deposits.


Perhaps the most remarkable act of the IRS was this: It assigned 6,411 ITINs (Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers) to unauthorized aliens presumably using a single address in Morganton, North Carolina. According to the 2010 Census, there were only 16,681 people in Morganton. So, for the IRS to have been correct in issuing 6,411 ITINS to unauthorized aliens at a single address Morganton it would have meant that 38 percent of the town’s total population were unauthorized alien workers using a single address.

Also, the IRS sent 8,393 checks to a single bank account (via GWP from Treasury.gov):


Meanwhile, if you made a single deposit of over $10,000 in cash into your bank account, you would most likely have some Feds knocking on your door (if they were in a polite mood).

This IG report was published almost a year ago. Why isn’t this big news? Why aren’t we seeing any perp walks? Why are we surprised there aren’t mass firings over excessive Tea Party scrutiny when there is apparently fraud by the tens of millions going on with no consequence whatsoever?
