1,300 Prison Inmates Get $9 Mil In Homebuyer Tax Credits
Do the crime, get below prime. What’s good enough for Chris Countrywide Dodd is good enough for America’s convicts. One home was used by 67 different people to claim a tax credit. Someone call Stimulus cop, Sheriff Joe Biden, $26.7 miliion is a big effin’ deal!
Nearly 1,300 prison inmates wrongly received more than $9 million in tax credits for homebuyers despite being locked up when they claimed they bought a home, a government investigator reported Wednesday.
The investigator said 241 of the inmates were serving life sentences.
In all, more than 14,100 taxpayers wrongly received at least $26.7 million in tax credits that were meant to boost the nation’s slumping housing markets, said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration.
