You might recall the scandalous findings by the Treasury Department’s Inspector General that the IRS sent $7,500 and $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit checks to thousands of people who simply asked for them between 2008 and 2010, with no documentation showing they were eligible or had even purchased a house. Among the recipients: hundreds of prison inmates, kids as young as three, and dead people.
