Our tax system will finally be repaired thanks to the Congress’s tax bill. It was a long fight but America’s taxes will finally be cut down to minimum.
As always, there is someone who is not looking forward to this and I bet you can guess who. Yes, I’m talking about the Democrats.
The Conservative noticed a change in the Congress’s bill that will be in help for the non-American citizens.
There has been new evidence that proves that the Senate again helped the immigrants to “save” money with allowing them to continue claim the child tax credit. Even though there is a new bill on taxes, this still remains.
As the existing law is saying, you don’t need a Social Security Number (SSN) to claim the funds but you can relace it with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). and that’s what the illegals are doing.
Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN) made sure that this will be fixed with the new bill, but apparently he was wrong. When Kevin Brady firstly released the bill, it was stated that “the taxpayer’s Social Security number on the return of tax for such taxable year.” This would’ve solve the problem with the immigrants who lack real SSNs, from claiming the child tax support.
But than, couple of days later, there’s been a change that still allows them that benefit. The “updated” bill is now saying: “No credit shall be allowed under this section to a taxpayer with respect to any qualifying child unless the taxpayer includes the name and Social Security number of such qualifying child on the return of tax for the taxable year”.
Thanks to Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA), many illegals have SSNs and a permanent residency in the U.S. The children of the immigrants who were born on America’s soil also have social security numbers and residency.
With only few words changed, the illegals are secured with the child tax credits. The U.S. born “anchor babies” will allow their parents to claim these funds although they are here illegally.
The native Americans are surely not happy about this. They are mad that the immigrants has so much benefits from their government. What’s happening is no good for the country amd for its citizens as well.
The good thing is that the President haven’t authorized this law yet. The Congress needs to have his approval before oficializing the bill. Maybe the President will not agree on this one?
We’ll just have to wait and see what will happen.
