IRS offers extra tax refunds to illegal immigrants granted amnesty by Obama

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen confirmed Tuesday that illegal immigrants granted amnesty from deportation under President Obama’s new policies would be able to get extra refunds from the IRS for money they earned while working illegally, as long as they filed returns during those years.

Illegal immigrants who are granted the amnesty will be given official Social Security numbers, which means they can go back and amend up to three years of previous tax forms to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, potentially claiming billions of dollars in additional payments they were ineligible for before the amnesty.

Mr. Koskinen said they will have to have already filed returns for those back-years, and there’s a statute of limitations that governs how far they can go back, but said the agency’s current interpretation of laws would allow them to claim the EITC credit retroactively.

“This is the problem you get into,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican who demanded a solution to the loophole. “The IRS’s interpretation of the EITC eligibility requirements undermines congressional policy for not rewarding those working illegally in the United States.


  1. Dammit! Im going to get a dark tan, dye my mustache black grab a sombrerro and turn myself into INS. We cant afford this. Nobody gets a damn tax return unless they have a damn job. Hasta la vista baby!

  2. :) They'll just make up fake, back taxes which can't be checked and we'll give them some of the taxpayer's money. Infuriating.

  3. How's that constitution workin' out for you?

  4. With no elected officials to uphold our constitution, not so well.

  5. I recall reading this back two yrs. ago and could not believe what these scavengers
    get away with. They claim whole families, nieces, nephews, kids, sisters, etc., all
    living in Mexico. This transaction was not even question before the check left the
    office; no checks and balances when it comes to illegals. Sickening.

    1. I remember that and if we tried it, we'd be prosecuted.

  6. Koskinen is among the most dishonorable men to ever sleep on these shores. The hangman awaits the date.
