    GOPís tax bill cancels $23 billion in credits claimed by illegal immigrants

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, November 2, 2017

    The new GOP tax overhaul would strip illegal immigrants of the ability to claim several major tax credits, saving the government $23.1 billion over the next decade, according to the billís authors.

    For years Republicans have complained that despite a general ban on taxpayer benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, the IRS has allowed them to collect the child tax credit, the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

    Efforts to shut down those claims have been tried in the House but have never cleared Congress.

    But the new tax overhaul tries again, calling for taxpayers to have to submit work-eligible Social Security numbers in order to claim the credits.

    Immigrant-rights advocates have complained about attempts to close the tax credits in the past.

    In the case of the child tax credit, activists say that while the parents may be in the country illegally, their children are often U.S. citizens who deserve the credit.

    Many illegal immigrants pay taxes using Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, which the IRS issues to those who arenít authorized to work in the U.S., but whom the government still wants to pony up to Uncle Sam.

    The IRS pays out billions of dollars a year in tax credits to people filing using ITINs each year, according to the agencyís inspector general.

    The inspector general has repeatedly urged the IRS to stop making the payments, but the agency has refused, saying it interprets the law related to those tax credits to cover illegal immigrants as well as other taxpayers.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he wanted the bill to include a $2,000 refundable child tax credit, a policy that has been endorsed by White House adviser Ivanka Trump. The House bill’s child tax credit currently stands at $1,600 and is not refundable.

    GOP senators already want changes to House tax reform bill

    No, they already get the refundable earned income tax credit. That's enough already. Is Marco a DemoQuack in R clothing??!! Ivanka, sit down and shut up. You are not an elected official. You aren't even an official. Now, pack up your adorable kids and handsome but too young and inexperienced husband and yourself who are both too young and inexperienced to play at this level and go back to New York and run your businesses, something you've both been raised and well-trained to do. We the people do not need you in DC, and neither does the President. Now go home and get out of this before you both become the best looking but most hated couple in the country!!

    GO HOME.
