Legislation to Eliminate Tax Loophole

Share this post

An Evansville-area state lawmaker has filed a bill he says is aimed at eliminating a tax loophole in the state that allows illegal immigrants and other to wrongfully collect unearned tax refunds. Wadesville State Senator Jim Tomes says an investigative series the Indianapolis NBC TV news affiliate WTHR brought the issue to his attention this summer. He says some illegal immigrants nationwide are taking advantage of the Additional Child Tax Credit on federal returns, claiming up to a one-thousand dollar credit per child for children who do not live in the U.S. Tomes said some of these same individuals may also be filing similar fraudulent claims in Indiana, wrongfully taking advantage of the state’s “dependent deduction.”
