IRS Failed To Inform Americans When Illegal Immigrants Stole Their Identity. The Number Of Cases Will Shock You.

If you thought that the targeting of Conservative groups by the IRS was the worse thing that the federal agency has been up, you are in for quite a shock.

Every year American citizens are burdened with having to fork over an increasingly large portion of their hard earned money to the federal government or face the wrath of the IRS. One would think that with as much money as the agency is taking from the American people that they would do everything in their power to protect their cash cows. Unfortunately that is not the case.

It has been revealed by the Washington Times that the IRS knew of more than 1 million cases in which the social security numbers and identities of American citizens were stolen and used by illegal immigrants and never thought to tell the people had been victimized. Even worse, the IRS had been informed of this problem 5 years ago by investigators and have still done nothing about it.

“It is stunning that the IRS has chosen to aid and abet identity thieves for so long instead of protecting the innocent victims of the theft,” Senator Daniel Coats said at a hearing on Capitol Hill.

During the same hearing, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said that in some cases people lent their SSN numbers to friends or family, so they already knew that their identity was being used. The real reason that the IRS hasn’t done anything about it is because as Koskinen said, “Obviously, priority for taxpayers and the IRS is collecting those taxes.”

Do you think it is outrageous that taxpayers are not notified if their identity has been stolen?
