On Wednesday, in a written response released to Senator Chuck Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, IRS Commissioner John Kosiken admitted that illegals who had been granted amnesty would, indeed, be eligible for Earned Income Tax Credits for the years they were here working illegally.

At a hearing back in February, Koskinen had asserted that to be eligible for these tax credits the illegals would have had to previously filed tax returns, but on Wednesday he backpedalled, and acknowledged that this was false. Amnestied illegals can now claim tax credits – and be eligible to receive a Social Security number and up to three years of back taxes.

“To amend my earlier comments on EITC, not only can an individual amend a prior year return to claim EITC, but an individual who did not file a prior year return may file a return and claim EITC (subject to refund limitations under section 6511 of the Internal Revenue Code). I would note that filing new returns for prior years would likely be difficult, since filers would have to reconstruct earnings and other records for years when they were not able to work on the books,” Koskinen said in his written response.

Essentially what the IRS Commish is telling us is that if these illegals can find (or, I’ll say it, fabricate) records to prove their income for the years they were in the United States working illegally they will be eligible to receive tens of thousands of dollars in back tax refunds. Isn’t that nice? The VA is a mess, and veterans can’t get their claims processed, but illegals will be receiving thousands of our tax dollars because Obama and the progressives want millions of future Democrat voters.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the EITC is claimed. At your request, the IRS has reviewed the relevant statuses and legislative history, and we believe that the 2000 Chief Counsel Advice (CCA) on this issue is correct,” Koskinen added.

Why don’t we just put a giant sign on our border that says, “Come in here illegally. Break our laws. We’ll pay you.”?
