Just two weeks after President Obama demanded tax increases on middle class American citizens, threatened to remove tax credits for college savings, called for more tax increases on citizens' retirement funds, we're faced with the prospect of rewarding all of those illegals to whom he just granted amnesty.
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.
I suppose we should be grateful that Obama's willing to cut taxes for somebody.
It's just a shame it's not the people who deserve them.
