IRS Sent $46 Million In Refunds To ‘Unauthorized’ Workers At One Atlanta Address

In what appears to be a significant oversight, the Internal Revenue Service sent a total of $46,378,040 in refunds to “unauthorized” workers at one address in Atlanta, Ga., according to a report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

Brought to light last year by WTHR-TV Indianapolis, the IRS’ $46 million in refunds included 23,994 tax payouts sent to the particular property in 2011.

As the audit report discloses, the Atlanta address is one of several that received a high number of refunds for Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) tax returns. ITINs are issued to those who are ineligible to obtain a Social Security number. However, it seems, the application for these identification numbers is flawed.
