On the 4th Day of Amnesty, Congress did not end…
$4.2 billion in tax credits to illegal aliens.
Although illegal aliens are not authorized to work in the U.S., some have used a loophole in U.S. tax laws to collect billions in tax credits. By using an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN), illegal aliens can file taxes showing minimal income and collect the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) from the U.S. government.
This $4.2 billion loophole should be an easy fix for Congress. Ensuring illegal aliens cannot further profit from breaking U.S. law is a no-brainer, right?
Despite the Treasury Inspector General revealing this problem in a 2012 report and numerous bills introduced, Congress has failed to stop illegal aliens from continuing to collect this tax credit and fraud continues.
