IRS doesn’t tell 1 million taxpayers that illegal immigrants stole their Social Security numbers?

Other answer:

Frank:
The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.
Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled — and fell woefully short anyway.
As a result, most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.

This is from the news story the poster is referring to. It's been all over the news for a couple of days, and was originally reported by the Washington Post.

tro:
it may take time but IRS usually finds most of them who have been using someone else's number, I had a client who was using a number that he had merely changed one number of his brother's number, he eventually was found out and actually being unschooled he actually had a valid SSN, the paper work that proves it etc.

IRS has other problems.

The IRS doesn't traffic in bullshit.

They didnt steal them. They gave them to them.
