( - The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011.

In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

Dang! Those 24,000 aliens must be really little green men that they can all fit in one street address! My home town was ~25,000 when I graduated from high school (I won’t say how long ago that was, but the cafeteria was serving the last of the Dino-Burgers that year).


small stuff, the IRS has bigger fish to fry - like investigating those really big time crooks, Conservative groups.


I was gonna say… And here I thought “stacking” was against the law.
