Undocumented workers received $4.2 billion from the Internal Revenue Service last year, according to a new study.

The report, released Thursday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, showed that the IRS allowed people unauthorized to work in the United States to collect billions of dollars in refundable tax credits in 2010, The Washington Post reported.

Under current law, individuals not permitted to work in the U.S. do not receive most federal public benefits — but an increasing number are filing tax returns claiming the Additional Child Tax Credit, which is set up for working families. The IRS says the law as presently written is vague and does not permit them to disallow the claims.
