Filing a tax return is an effort to create a history so that one can get a loan approval in future without too many hassles.
There are illegal immigrants residing in USA who bear the thought that filing a tax return may pave the path of their ouster from the country. Also, such a step starts the possibility of an IRS Audit which would be much avoided by many people.
Reasons behind Illegal immigrants refraining from filing returns
Illegal Immigrants believe that filing a return will actually bring them in the limelight. And knowing the fact completely well that IRS and Government works hand in hand to combat the issue of “illegal immigrants” in the country, the latter don’t want to report their presence with any of the authorities in the country. At the end of the day, they look like “remorseless law breakers”.
The taxes illegal immigrants pay in reality
When you check the ground reality, you will come to know that these illegal; immigrants pay more taxes than the citizens of USA. And a large reason behind this “more payment” is that they are not able to enjoy any of the deductions as they don’t qualify for most of them rather all of them.
Supportive view on illegal immigrants paying the taxes
There are very many advertising agencies, making special kind of ads for helping the illegal immigrants to pay their taxes. In fact, there are agencies who do not even ask the actual status of illegal immigrants, and they help them to proceed with the process.
Even, IRS also encourages the practices of filing income tax returns by these undocumented immigrants, although it goes absolutely against the efforts made by the Homeland Security Department.
Filing tax returns is an opportunity for the undocumented immigrants
The undocumented immigrants can take it as an opportunity to file returns, as it makes them “a worthy component” of the American society and even the economy of the country. There is a general view that undocumented immigrants are supposed to pick up jobs which are denied by the Americans. By filing tax returns, even these undocumented entities in the country can add value to the nation.
The importance of paying taxes
The undocumented immigrants, who have been paying taxes for the earnings they make, will have a document to prove their presence in the country for the period they require to mention in future. Even if they are working and getting paid in cash, they should report the same and pay taxes accordingly. Those not holding a social Security Number are provided with an individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) which helps in filing returns.
