IRS Sends Millions to Single Bank Account Accessed by Over 2000 Aliens

Posted on June 26, 2013

CNSNews .com reports that the IRS has sent $7,319,518 in refunds to a single bank account that is used by 2,706 aliens who are reportedly not authorized to work within the United States.

For almost two decades the IRS has been issuing what are known as Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers into two classes, non-resident aliens who have a tax liability in the United States and aliens living in the United States who are “not authorized to work in the United States”. These recent allegations were sparked by IRS employees who said IRS management had required them to assign these ITIN numbers fraudulently.

Deeper investigation reveals that the IRS hasn’t established strict rules or regulation against fraudulent applications and that various other bank accounts registered to aliens using ITIN’s were receiving substantial refunds totaling over $9,108,408.
