Comment On Ignorance and Stupidity the Government way
Here we go again, a Government that spent money on Tax refunds and said that they should have done some thing about it when they saw it, but this is the problem with the Government today, a do nothing but complain about needing more taxes and spending money they do not have, but it seems to be the Democrats again saying why not, that is spreading around the wealth, that seems to be their thing.
This is Americans new symbol to put on the Flag for all Government Agencies, Untrustworthy, and can not believe one word they say, because it seems that they do not believe in the Constitution or the flag, but what is the differences, they have always been that way, they lie, and use dirty politics until they get the people to believing it, that is not hard for some, they will believe any thing, and this Election is no different.
Florida home files 741 tax returns in single year, gets more than $1M in refunds
By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News | The Sideshow
A single home in Florida filed 741 different tax returns in a single year, receiving more than $1 million in refunds.
The Sun Sentinel says the findings were released in a report issued by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. The independent watchdog group oversees the IRS.
“The report really underscores just how bad a problem ID tax fraud is in Florida and around the country,” said U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who asked the Treasury Inspector General last year to investigate the extent of the problem. “It’s become an epidemic that’s costing law-abiding U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. And it’s one we’ve got to fix. That’s why I’ve filed legislation aimed at putting a stop to these fraudsters.”
And while the IRS has not officially confirmed the findings, House Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany Jr., R-La., referenced the 741 filings as originating from a single home.
The Sun notes that three of the top five fraudulent returns in the U.S. last year originated in Florida, with Miami and Tampa being cited as the top cities to submit potentially fraudulent returns. A Tax Administration spokesman said nearly 75,000 fraudulent returns were submitted from Miami in 2010, totaling $281 million in refunds. The IRS says it has been attempting to crack down on identity theft by increasing protective measures against the crime.
Rep. Boustany said another home in Tampa sent out fewer returns, 518, but received refunds totaling $1.8 million. In addition, he says a post office box in Orlando received just over $1 million for 703 suspected fraudulent returns.
“Over the past several years my office has seen a dramatic increase in the number of individuals needing assistance because of tax refund identity theft, a clear indication this crime is becoming a big problem in South Florida,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.
