IRS Found 1.2 Million Cases of Identity Theft by Illegal Immigrants


...

"We identified 1,227,579 electronically filed tax returns, processed in FY 2017 through April 18, 2017, in which the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number on the return does not match the Social Security Number on the Form W-2," the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration told CNSNews.com

"Note that a Social Security Number may have been used on Form W-2 for more than one of these returns."

Between processing years 2011 and 2016, "the IRS placed the employment identity theft marker on 1,346,485 taxpayer accounts," according to a TIGTA report from last month.

When asked by CNSNews.com how many of these cases "did the IRS refer to federal law enforcement for criminal investigation and prosecution? How many did they not refer to law enforcement and why not?"

TIGTA responded: "We do not have this information."

this is an odd statement


FY 2017 through April 18, 2017, in which the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number on the return does not match the Social Security Number on the Form W-2," the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration told CNSNews.com

An ITIN is a number given to aliens that do not have a Social Security Number.

ITIN numbers are issued by the IRS to individuals who do not have, and are not eligible to obtain, a valid U.S. Social Security Number, but who are required by law to file a U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.

Holy bad journalism Batman! Where it is indicated illegals did this? Or that it was not simply errors?
Did the article even mention illegal immigrants?

Two geniuses. All you need do is click the link to the article, says right at the top. Too hard, eh.


The Internal Revenue Services documented over 1.2 million cases of illegal immigrants filing tax returns with illegitimate social security numbers in 2017, CNSNews.com reports.

It doesn't even make sense. Any undocumented person using a false SSN to work, pay taxes, file returns, etc. is presumably heavily motivated to avoid detection. Why would they use a different SSN on the return from that listed on the W-2?

That's probably the easiest error to detect.

Ms. Madeline,

Because they need a SSN to get a job, but only need a taxpayer ID number to file taxes.

It is really quite simple. If they file taxes using someone else's SSN, they are committing fraud and are subject to being found out.
