LEGALIZE IMMIGRATION STATUS OF THOSE WITH A TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBER ITIN.

    1. Petition by

      David Rossi

      Berwyn, IL

On 1997, the congress passed the use of the Tax Identification Number under W- known as ITIN for use for NON-RESIDENTS, this in practical means anyone who doesn't qualify for a SSN card.
As result undocumented are able to pay income taxes, social security and medicare.
Billions are collected and NO ONE is talking about giving something back to this "Taxpayers".
Quotes from Press..
AP article on NBC
"...One rough estimate puts the amount of Social Security taxes alone at around $9 billion per year....The agency (IRS) estimates that for 2005, the last year for which figures are available, about $9 billion in taxes was paid on about $75 billion in wages..Federal law prohibits paying Social Security to illegal immigrants, but the administration factors in both legal and illegal immigration when projecting the trust fund's long-term solvency..."
During years as I tax helper I have seem thousands of families paying income tax..
sadly the govermment are deaf and blind to accept that they collect this money.
Both parties always play dumb, but there is ground to legalize millions of TAXPAYERS.
So the Excuse of these immigrants not paying taxes is flawed.
