    Will lawmakers act to close tax loophole for illegal immigrants?

    MORE: Tax loophole costs billions

    The loophole allows undocumented workers to collect what's called an additional child tax credit. The credit – up to $1,000 per child – can be claimed even by families who pay nothing in taxes, in many cases resulting in a cash payment from the IRS. It is intended for working families with children who live in the same home.

    But a local tax preparer came to Eyewitness News to blow the whistle on millions of people who, he believes, are taking advantage of the system. He says many illegal immigrants are claiming the tax credit for children who've never lived in this country, and he showed 13 Investigates dozens of redacted tax returns to prove his point.

    "There is not a doubt in my mind there is huge fraud taking place here," said the whistleblower, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisal. "I can bring out stacks and stacks. It's just so easy it's ridiculous."

    Exposing the loophole
    An undocumented worker in southern Indiana told 13 Investigates just how easy it truly is.
    He said four other illegal immigrants file tax returns using his address, even though none of them actually lives there. And he said this year, those four workers filed tax returns claiming 20 children live inside his small trailer home. As a result, the IRS sent the illegal immigrants tax refunds totaling more than $29,000.

    But none of the 20 children listed as dependents on the tax returns lives in Indiana – or even in the United States.

    "No, they don't live here," admitted the undocumented worker, who lives with his young daughter. "The other kids are in their country of origin, which is Mexico."

    Explain "enforcement." If there were any kind of enforcement there would not be 20 million in the country illegally. The cost of implementing mandatory E-Verify would be far less then the $18 billion spent on enforcement and more effective. Enforcement is a joke as is.
