The IRS and the Obama administration is absolutely beyond 'Out of Control'!
Ever have your identity stolen?...Know anyone who has?

Well, if your SSN is being illegally used by an illegal immigrant to illegally file illegal tax returns...the IRS will not only 'look the other way'...but, according to the IRS Commissioner, encourages this illegal activity...as long as you're an illegal immigrant!

Is there any doubt that this administration is willing to put the security of non-citizens above those of it's actual citizens?



The IRS is struggling to ensure that illegal immigrants are able to illegally use Social Security numbers for legitimate purposes, the agency's head told senators on Tuesday, without allowing the numbers to be used for "bad" reasons.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen made the statement in response to a question from Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., during a session of the Senate Finance Committee about why the IRS appears to be collaborating with taxpayers who file tax returns using fraudulent information. Coats said that his staff had discovered the practice after looking into agency procedures.

"What we learned is that ... the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that's not really our job," Coats said. "We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid."

Asked to explain those practices, Koskinen replied, "What happens in these situations is someone is using a Social Security number to get a job, but they're filing their tax return with their [taxpayer identification number]." What that means, he said, is that "they are undocumented aliens … . They're paying taxes. It's in everybody's interest to have them pay the taxes they owe."

As long as the information is being used only to fraudulently obtain jobs, Koskinen said, rather than to claim false tax returns, the agency has an interest in helping them. "The question is whether the Social Security number they're using to get the job has been stolen. It's not the normal identity theft situation," he said.

So.... what happens when it is time to retire?
Who's social security benefits are they stealing?

What happens when they apply for a credit card? Loans?
Health insurance?
Who's credit rating are they ruining?

Seriously, the stupidity of the IRS boggles the mind.
As long as the government gets their taxes, who cares about the little people?

shouldn't shock anybody when ya start to add up the bill for all of Obama's policies. They have to keep paying for it if they wanna keep ringing up the tab. There was a story not long ago about how much $$ the govt is racking in in taxes. Now they can point to those numbers and go "Look! Look! we got plenty of money! keep spending!"

Well, if you're "up for retirement" after the year 2035 the fund is estimated to have "run out" by then anyway (no more surplus), so at least you'll have already been jipped somewhat

The irony and obvious deceit of the Obama Administration.

It's all part of His so-called "Executive" privilege and selective enforcement agenda.

And the real irony is this from the IRS 3 years ago.....

IRS Expands Law Enforcement Assistance Program on Identity Theft to 50 States; Victim Assistance and Criminal Investigations Grow


March 28, 2013

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced a nationwide expansion of the program designed to help law enforcement obtain tax return data vital to their local efforts in investigating and prosecuting specific cases of identity theft.

More than 1,560 waiver requests have been received since the Law Enforcement Assistance Program’s inception from over 100 state and local law enforcement agencies in the nine states participating in the pilot. The expansion covers all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and will be effective Friday, March 29, 2013.

“The results of the pilot illustrate that this works as an innovative tool for law enforcement to help pursue tough identity theft situations,” said IRS Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller. “This program is an effective way for law enforcement to work with the IRS to pursue identity thieves and protect taxpayers. Expanding the program and making it permanent on a nationwide basis makes sense for victims as well as law enforcement and tax administration.”

I wonder if this same acquiescence and encouragement extends to illegal immigrants registering to vote.

Illegal immigrants can apply for an ITIN number to use to file taxes, and they will be given one. There is no need to steal a SSN number.

It's actually much easier than getting your hands on a fake SSN (or a stolen one). My wife has used hers for taxes since 2008, easy peasy.

You don't need to be a genius, just try to be honest. The IRS official there should be informing the population about the ITIN number. It was created by the IRS for the express purpose of letting illegal immigrants file taxes, even though they aren't permitted the SSN #.

So if the IRS creates the number for that purpose, why would they be advocating criminal behavior. I realize they want that taxpayer money real bad. But still, that just doesn't make any common sense.
