“Gat Ya free 20k” the woman told the new invader from Mexico. “What?” “Yah you just file the papers and yas gets 20k!”
It’s the Earned Income Tax Credit and invaders / illegal aliens can file for the existing year and the two prior years for a total of about $20,000 dollars in free money for breaking into America.
It’s the silver lining in the do-nothing Trump tax plan, it finally requires a social security number to take the credit.
The abuse is so bad in this program, and Obama explicitly told the IRS not to investigate anyone with a hispanic name, that one address in Atlanta filed for over 23 million in EIC credits and they got it! and never got in trouble!
What is absolutely SICK about this program is if you’ve never worked not paid a DIME in taxes. you still get your 20k. SICK!
The new GOP tax overhaul would strip illegal immigrants of the ability to claim several major tax credits, saving the government $23.1 billion over the next decade, according to the bill’s authors.
For years Republicans have complained that despite a general ban on taxpayer benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, the IRS has allowed them to collect the child tax credit, the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Efforts to shut down those claims have been tried in the House but have never cleared Congress.
But the new tax overhaul tries again, calling for taxpayers to have to submit work-eligible Social Security numbers in order to claim the credits.
Immigrant-rights advocates have complained about attempts to close the tax credits in the past.
