Surely not, surely our government wouldn't stick it to the taxpayers, in favor of these thieivng interlopers. We have too much government and sadly that government is working against what We the People want and need. With BO in charge, government has burgeoned out of control.

Fraud is OKAY when you are an ITIN tax filer.

You citizens just keep working and filing your taxes
