The IRS is incompetent. I know, shocker.
The man in charge of the much-maligned organization, John Koskinen, has been able to keep his job despite the myraid of scandals that have taken place on his watch.
This is an organization not trusted one bit by the American people. And for good reason!
This latest statement though might be the last straw!
Via Washington Examiner:
The IRS is struggling to ensure that illegal immigrants are able to illegally use Social Security numbers for legitimate purposes, the agency’s head told senators on Tuesday, without allowing the numbers to be used for “bad” reasons.
Asked to explain those practices, Koskinen replied, “What happens in these situations is someone is using a Social Security number to get a job, but they’re filing their tax return with their [taxpayer identification number].” What that means, he said, is that “they are undocumented aliens … . They’re paying taxes. It’s in everybody’s interest to have them pay the taxes they owe.”
As long as the information is being used only to fraudulently obtain jobs, Koskinen said, rather than to claim false tax returns, the agency has an interest in helping them. “The question is whether the Social Security number they’re using to get the job has been stolen. It’s not the normal identity theft situation,” he said.
Yes. you read that correctly. The IRS is OK if illegal immigrants steal someone’s Social Security number, just so long as they pay taxes!
Nevermind the identity theft, just give the government the money you owe them!
Truly despicable. The IRS is a corrupt institution and needs to be destroyed and rebuilt! Or not even rebuilt at all!
