It gets worse… A scammer can probably help you out faster than the IRS Crocopede.
Sadly, America doesn’t seem to be what it once was, but maybe its just a blip in the curve…
“Biggest IRS scam around: Identity tax refund fraud
Con artists have been filing bogus tax returns and collecting millions. Steve Kroft finds out how far the scam has gone and why the IRS hasn’t been able to stop it”
That same type of corruption is hyper-common here in the US. It’s just hidden behind a veneer of respectability. I’d honestly say it’s MORE corrupt than places where the corruption is visible, because hiding the corruption involves further, more widespread corruption.
I dont know if its worse. The states have something to show for their tax money. Fraud and corruption is everywhere. But some governing bodies still have enough respect to only steal a quarter, or half of their budgets. Feeding the rest back into the systems it was intended for.
However here, the president decided to build a 230mil rand house. Thats about $23Mil
And just said, oh im sorry. I didnt ask for the upgrades. People just decided to come and build me a new house so i dont have to pay back your tax money for this because i did not ask for it to be done.
Sometime i wish i lived in that world. A world where a few thousand workers rock up with massive machines and tells me… hey man! we are build you a new house weather you like it or not. But dont worry, it wont be your money we ask.
