Rep. Messer's bill would close tax loophole for undocumented workers
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Five years after 13 Investigates exposed a massive tax loophole for undocumented workers, Congress will again consider a remedy.
This afternoon, Congressman Luke Messer (R – Indiana) introduced legislation that would effectively prevent illegal immigrants from claiming Child Tax Credits on their federal tax returns.
Back in 2012, WTHR exposed how the Internal Revenue Service was paying more than $4 billion annually in various Child Tax Credits to undocumented workers – and that much of that money was granted for children who never lived in the United States. https://www.wthr.com/article/rep-mes...mented-workers
