Corrupt IRS Exposed in Making Bogus Refunds

ByMiles Terry1501269216663

In an explosive new revelation reported earlier this week, it was reported by the Washington Times that the former Obama Administration gave out more that “$24 billion in potentially bogus refunds claimed under several controversial tax credits in 2016, according to a new audit that said $118 million was even paid to people who weren’t authorized to work in the U.S. in the first place.”

One thing is clear – beyond the sheer incompetence that continues to plague this agency - the extent of corruption at the IRS has clearly not been fully realized.

The report also revealed the following:

  • “Some $16.8 billion in payments were made on improper claims under the Earned Income Tax Credit, signifying a 24 percent error rate.”
  • “Investigators also estimated $7.2 billion in improper payments for the Additional Child Tax Credit, representing 25 percent of the total, and $1.1 billion in improper payments, or 24 percent, for a higher education tax credit. (The totals and error rates for the earned income and child credits were comparable for 2015, while the education tax credit saw improvement.)”

The agency responded with assurances that the inspector general and the agency itself were taking steps to rectify the errors and keep them from happening again.

Two things are certain. This agency has a long history of incompetence and the inability to self-regulate and self-correct its own corruption.

We know this from experience. We are in our fifth year of battling the IRS for the corrupt and overreaching bureaucracy that it has become and we will not stop fighting for justice.

The American people deserve better.
