Billions of dollars in tax refunds will go to all the illegals just given amnesty by Barack Obama. It was confirmed by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Tuesday during the Senate hearings.
These are extra ‘refunds’ for money earned illegally while they were here illegally. It is being done through the Earned Income Tax Credit.
The Credit is another form of welfare in which money is redistributed to low income workers from higher-paid workers. Some get back more money than they put in.
These particular illegals are to be given Social Security numbers and with that, they can collect the Earned Income Tax Credit. They actually get paid by taxpayers for not making enough money. It was meant for our poor citizens, not them.
will be "refunded" to illegal immigrants who file tax returns.

I'm sure you'll get many venom filled responses to a very pertinent question.
This topic is always filled with the same vitriol from the same people.
Personally, if they pay their way, & add to the infastructure...
I don't see a problem with immigrants whether they arrived how the dictatorship approves of or not.
Why make this about race (immigrants)? This is about not paying taxes and receiving a refund.
If I pay $2,000 in taxes for the year and then receive a $8,000 refund then I am not a tax payer I am a welfare recipient'

The residency rules for tax purposes are found in I.R.C. § 7701(b). Although the tax residency rules are based on the immigration laws concerning immigrants and nonimmigrants, the rules define residency for tax purposes in a way that is very different from the immigration laws. Under the residency rules of the Code, any alien who is not a RESIDENT ALIEN is a NONRESIDENT ALIEN. An alien will become a RESIDENT ALIEN in one of three ways:
By being admitted to the United States as, or changing status to, a Lawful Permanent Resident under the immigration laws (the Green Card Test);
By passing the Substantial Presence Test (which is a numerical formula which measures days of presence in the United States); or
By making what is called the "First-Year Choice" (a numerical formula under which an alien may pass the Substantial Presence Test one year earlier than under the normal rules). Refer to the discussion of "First-Year Choice" in Chapter 1 of Publication 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens.
Under these rules, even an undocumented (illegal) alien under the immigration laws who passes the Substantial Presence Test will be treated for tax purposes as a RESIDENT ALIEN.

This goes into a few dark territories. Like what if an illegal immigrant has a child that was born here in the US? By that logic, they should qualify for the child tax credit. If they pay into the tax system through their paychecks, sales taxes, etc.. I don't see why they wouldn't be entitled to same refund citizens are allowed.
I don't agree with welfare queens popping out children and living off tax credits or welfare, but that disagree applies to both legal and illegal persons in this country.
