I suppose we should all feel good about the IRS and its role in Obamacare. All the added agents will surely see that the law is carried out and the funds go to the correct agencies, right? Not likely to happen without a hitch or two. Just yesterday the AP released a story of IRS tax return fraud of epic proportions.
From AP: In one example, investigators found a single address in Lansing, Mich., that was used to file 2,137 separate tax returns. The IRS issued more than $3.3 million in refunds to that address. Three addresses in Florida, the epicenter of the identity theft crisis, filed more than 500 returns totaling more than $1 million in refunds for each address. In another troubling scenario, hundreds of refunds were deposited into the same bank account — a red flag for investigators searching for ID thieves who may be filing for refunds for multiple people. In one instance, the IRS deposited 590 refunds totaling more than $900,000 into one account.
OK, can we assume the intelligent folks over at the IRS are so over worked that these red flags were missed that easily? Is this what America can expect with the implementation of Obamacare and the subsequent bureaucracy of a bloated department that already occupies more building in DC than any other in this Leviathan. I must say this should stir everyone’s thoughts as to the future we face if this job killing policy is not repealed.
That still leaves us with the nauseating assurance that the current T-guys just mail out billions without repercussions. Heads should roll and jobs lost, we have tons of illegals willing to do their job. Read more about it here.
