Illegal Immigration and Tax Revenue /


Despite efforts starting in 1996 by the Federal Government to make it easier for illegal workers to file and pay income taxes, only a small percentage of the estimated 12 to 30 million illegal workers file income tax returns and the majority that do are not paying taxes but receiving refunds, according to tax return information provided by the Internal Revenue Service.

The information provided to JJ Chronicles following a Freedom of Information Act Request spanned tax years 1996 to 2003. Because the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number system is not as rigorous as Social Security Number identification, deciphering the numbers can be difficult. For example, one ITIN can be used by more than one member of the family, so the wage earner, his spouse and all of his or her children can use the same number, according to the IRS. This makes it difficult for even the IRS to determine accurately the actual number of ITIN tax returns.

    The U.S. government has by allowing the use of these numbers sanctioned illegal activity.

  2. The Dems could care less what is legal or illegal. All they are interested in achieving is VOTES so they can live high on the hog and push their agendas.

    The Republicans just passed the NEXT 800+ Billion ‘stimulus’ plan and I’m sure they ALL will pass several more before it’s all over with which is why the current Republican Party is NO longer the Party for the People of America. We have other parties but what we need is LEADERS.

    We’re ‘GIVING’ this country away or selling it to the highest bidder…and the bidding is EXTREMELY low compared to the blood that has been shed to free and KEEP free this once GREAT nation.

    Long live those who still see the importance of keeping “Made in the USA” alive, the belief in God, freedom of speech and the right to continue our “Clinging to our guns”.

    God bless America and her beautiful heritage that’s made her and kept her strong!
