  • Investigate Employer Who Filed 37,375 Bad W-2s in One Year

    I have a challenge for members of Congress now vowing that the federal government will enforce the immigration laws in the future if we just let them take the illegal aliens in the United States today and put them on a "pathway to citizenship." It is this: Investigate the employer who -- according to the Office of the Inspector General of the Social Security Administration (SSA) -- filed 37,375 inaccurate W-2s in tax year 2005. In fact, investigate all employers who have similarly filed massive numbers of bad W-2s. Forget the employers who filed 100, 200 or even 500 bad...
  • Have You Received Your W2 Form Yet? (Vanity)

    Pardon the vanity, but here goes. Has anybody received their W2 forms yet? The reason I ask is because, starting this year, many employers have to report how much they contributed to our health insurance premiums. This is a provision of Obama(mis)care. Here is a link from the Horses...mouth. Employers over a certain threshold number of employees need to start reporting this number, but it's only "informational" this year. In years to come, some of that number will be considered taxable income if it's over a certain amount, because it's considered "Cadillac Insurance." This is a tax "only on the...

    Is the individual mandate in ObamaCare a tax? No, said Nancy Pelosi. No, said DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, even if the IRS is the only agency that can enforce it. No, said Jay Carney, or at least, "it is not a broad-based tax."Of course, Mitt Romney called it a tax --- eventually. Yesterday, his opponent in the election weighed in on the issue, and … have we reached a consensus?CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO OF OBAMA ADMITTING HE LIED TO US “By the way, if you’ve got health insurance, you’re not getting hit by a tax,” President Obama...
  • Two W2's for the same employer

    Hi Everybody. I wouldn't normally ask a tax question here, because I know that some people will just say "Go pay a preparer," but I was hoping to avoid a large cost if I can. Here's the issue. My employer used to use a 3rd party tax preparer to do all their payroll (not ADP, but a similar service). Then at the end of January, they switched to doing it all "in-house." So today, I got my W2, and it is missing all earnings, taxes, etc., that I paid in the beginning portion of January. So I spoke with the...
  • One Business Filed 37,375 Bad W-2 Forms -- and Is Getting Away With It

    07/07/2010 9:30:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | July 7, 2010 | Terry Jeffrey
    A single employer filed 37,375 W-2 forms in tax year 2005 on which the Social Security Number and the name did not match. These "no-match" W-2 forms often -- but not always -- represent an illegal-alien worker fraudulently using someone else's Social Security number or a fake number. An employer who files 37,375 no-match W-2s in one year is almost certainly employing many thousands of illegal aliens -- and knows it. Yet there is no indication our federal government has taken any action to stop this employer from continuing to employ mass numbers of illegal aliens. The unemployment rate was...

    Jeanine L. Jackson is not your average W-2 client. She's 37, has attended technical college, run her own retail businesses, studied case law and acted as her own lawyer in two court cases. That makes her older and more savvy than most in the Wisconsin Works welfare reform program, a last-ditch stop for low-skill, jobless and often dead-broke single parents. A single mother of two, Jackson also has a history of fighting back when she feels she's been treated unfairly. Her persistence has both helped and hindered her. "I know I'm not the first recipient to have problems with W-2,"...
  • Bush heads to Crawford for August vacation

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush left for his traditional midsummer break Tuesday having accomplished the first goal of his second term -- ensuring he wouldn't spend four years as a lame duck. Before heading to the ranch in Crawford, Texas, the president celebrated congressional passage of his long-stalled energy bill -- a goal he has sought since moving into the White House -- and approval of the Central American Free Trade Agreement. But the early success doesn't end there. Bush oversaw passage of the $286 billion transportation bill, which had been stalled in Congress for two years, and the Patriot Act...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush's chief of staff appealed on Sunday for congressional Democrats to work with the administration and Republicans rather than complain and stall action on Capitol Hill. Andrew Card, appearing on three talk shows, also reaffirmed the president's support for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, the Texas Republican whose ties to lobbyists have raised ethics questions, and John R. Bolton, the embattled nominee to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. "We'd like to see more cooperation from the Democrats," Card said. "We have some serious problems in this country that must be addressed. We'd like to see...

    CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Monday the White House has been responsive to senators' concerns about John Bolton, the embattled nominee for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and prodded the Senate to move forward on his nomination. "We understand the deliberative processes of the Senate. And we've tried to be as responsive as possible to all of the questions that have been asked," Rice said. "But I would really hope now that people will move forward on John Bolton's nomination." Rice was in Crawford, Texas for a meeting between President Bush and Saudi...
  • Are People Working Under False Identities at the Defense Department?

    How many people using false identities have been employed by the Defense Department? Are some illegal aliens? As of now, the government does not have definitive answers to these questions. Unfortunately, they need to be asked because on March 29 the inspector general of the Social Security Administration published an audit report revealing that Defense, plus the Coast Guard (which is a component of the Department of Homeland Security), filed nearly 6,400 W-2 forms between 1997-2002 that could not be matched to known taxpayers and thus had to be dumped into what SSA calls the Earnings Suspense File (ESF).

    The consistency is there. It’s strong. It’s unbending. It’s characteristic of the President of the most powerful nation on Earth. George W. Bush states to the world that life comes first and last. We are not a nation given to killing. We help, not harm. We are here on this planet to do all possible to keep mortals alive. We are not here to make life convenient. Life is made up of triumphs and tragedy. Those who want only triumphs live in their fantasies. Those who confront here a spiritually damaged sphere are the realists. Those who are compassionate realists...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush's $2.6 trillion budget plan working its way through Congress is dishonest and violates the core values of average Americans, Sen. John Kerry, Bush's former rival for the presidency, said Thursday. "This budget is like an Enron budget: smoke the numbers, cook the books, hide the truth and hope no one finds out," said Kerry, who was last year's Democratic presidential nominee. Kerry criticized the Republican leadership's priorities in a budget that includes proposed cuts in health care and education and up to $106 billion in tax cuts over the next five years. And he said the...

    PARIS - Around the world, the notion of U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz leading the World Bank met with reactions that ranged mainly from official reserve to outright denunciation, but there was some support. Wolfowitz, nominated Wednesday by President Bush, is widely seen as a key instigator in the U.S. push to topple Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. International organizations worried about the nominee's hawkish politics and questioned whether he is right for the job. Bush, who has sought to mend ties with European allies that opposed the Iraq war, called French President Jacques Chirac to tell him the news....
  • REPORT: One U.S. Company Filed 33,448 Inaccurate W-2s in One Year

    Every year the Social Security Administration consigns up to 9 million hopelessly inaccurate W-2 reports to a Social Security limbo. It is called the Earnings Suspense File (ESF), and it is the final resting place of W-2s that cannot be matched to a known taxpayer. One company filed 33,448 of these inaccurate W-2s in one year. But will the government do anything about it? House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner asked the Government Accountability Office to look at the ESF. This month GAO released a report (focusing on 1985-2000) that reveals a telling pattern. Orphaned W-2s do not emerge randomly from...

    BEIRUT - Lebanon's pro-Syrian prime minister who was forced to resign last week was set to return to his job on Thursday, faced with the daunting task of forming a government with pro-Damascus allies and anti-Syrian opponents. More Syrian troops pulled back to eastern Lebanon, with some crossing the border, in the start of a two-phase withdrawal, and President Bush piled pressure on Damascus to end the "heavy-handed" influence of Syrian intelligence in Lebanon. But pro-Syrian rallies that drew hundreds of thousands of people onto the streets of Beirut and Damascus in the last two days dwarfed previous protests in...

    HELENA - Gov. Brian Schweitzer made national headlines at the National Governors Association meeting this week when he publicly criticized President Bush's proposed Medicaid cuts and Social Security plan. However, one Republican lawmaker in Montana said Schweitzer was out of line. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Schweitzer, a Democrat, used "harsh words" when answering reporters' questions at a press conference about the Republican president's proposed budget cuts and plans to privatize Social Security. "Honey works a lot better than vinegar," said Senate Minority Leader, Bob Keenan, R-Bigfork, who wrote the governor expressing his concerns. "The real Brian Schweitzer...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2005 -- In his first trip abroad of his second term in office, President Bush told Europeans that "the alliance of Europe and North America is the main pillar of our security." Bush spoke in Brussels, Belgium, home of the NATO alliance and the European Union. The president acknowledged that many in Europe have not agreed with U.S. foreign policy. But, he added, for the sake of peace in the world, America and Europe must not forget their shared beliefs. "Our strong friendship is essential to peace and prosperity across the globe, and no temporary debate, no...

    This past inauguration day, the cold weather was the least of the problem. The bigger problem was the realization that America is slowly falling apart. The second inauguration attracted the worst undergrowth of American society, and they all descended on the nation's Capitol. God gave us the great gift of humanity. Why would some humans choose to devolve to the insect class? After eight hours of rubbing shoulders with the repugnant, foul protestors, I had to take two showers to purge myself of the contamination. It was like entering a well-used Port-a-Potty but never exiting. There was no fresh air...
