IRS sent tens of millions in refunds to illegal aliens in Atlanta
This is one of those stories that you have to read and check twice to make sure it's not some delayed April Fools Day joke.
Guess what government agency needs a little "mail room quality control"? or what agency doesn't seem to care just how much they spend on postage?
The answer is the IRS, the "Star Trek" or "line dancing IRS"!
Here is the story: The IRS mailed 23,994 refund checks to the same address in Atlanta.
Wonder what the neighborhood mail man said about that? Did he notice a heavier bag or a stuffed mail box? Did he bring it to the attention of his supervisor? What did the IRS mail room do when thousands of "return to sender" letters came from the same address?
Frankly, does anyone care?
The story gets better, if that's possible: The IRS sent 11,284 refunds to a 2nd address.....3,608 to a 3rd and 2,386 to a fourth address. All of the checks were refunds for illegal aliens.
At some point, the IRS will have to come clean and admit that there are some real operational problems. Otherwise, the IRS will continue to lose support among those who write checks payable to the IRS every year.
The IRS has collected millions of dollars over the year because people trust the integrity of the agency.
The IRS's integrity, and competence, are at stake today. Let's hope that someone tells President Obama that he can't continue to "vote present" on this scandal.
