    I think you're an IRS agent.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

      SANNY,
      How different will these circumstances be for an independent contractor who's done some freelance work for a couple years and now wants to pay taxes?

        Hudson,

        Your steadfast insistence that the IRS is an isolated entity is no doubt credible. However it also is quite indicative of the underlying problem with our "system". Bureaucracy was never intended to isolate functions as much as it was intended to delegate tasks and authority so that output could be improved through the development of expertise.

        I am all for sharing vital information with investigative agencies with due dillegence; however, I am very cautios in providing vital taxpayer information to just anybody, namely Congress or malicious federal/state employees. What you fail to realize is that the integrity of the IRS and other federal/state investigative agencies is at stake, not just satisfying your personal vendetta. When employers hire illegals, they violate more than just ICE and IRS regulatons, it also involves dept of Labor and commerce regs as well. This is where information needs to be share on the primary purputrator, not just the immigrants who get caught in the mess. That needs to be handled seperately b/c of the very lack of information involved.

          Hudson'or anyone else could chime in
          I'm a bit skeptical of the notion that IRS and CIS don't share information on immigration status.
          Take for example when applying for an ITIN using the W7 form you are asked to provide, among others
          1. The basis for filing the tax returns
          2.A copy of your current passport,our present immigration status, visa category and expiration dates, date of entry into US and practically your full immigration history.
          3. Your current address

          Now after sending all of this info to IRS ,why wouldn't IRS cross-check this information with the responsible agency, CIS, which then brings
          to the attention of CIS your presence in the country
          .
          Again, in the event of an expired visa and no work authorization, why would the IRS proceed to issue one with an ITIN and pretend all's well.

          And what stops the CIS from coming after you with the information now available to them.

          For someone earning income in the US who wants to pay taxes, as well he should, without potential immigration woes, what's a guy to do?

          Please enlighten. Thanks
          What you fail to realize is that IRS and USCIS do not go together most of the time. For instance, a nonresident alien who has never stepped foot in the US can be considered a resident alien for tax purposes if they are filing a joint return and the spouse is either a resident alien or US citizen. This is very commoon with US citizens stationed abroad either in private practice or government service. If they file a joint return, the NRA spouse would need an ITIN in order for the exemption to be claimed along with certain tax credits. The ITIN is only used for tax purposes, not for work. It has never been used that. What Sammy brought up was the apparent misuse of the ITIN in driver license. This has more to do with state agencies not following federal guidelines. Furthermore, unless you are on a A, F, J, Q, M, or P visa, immmigration and taxes generally do not validate each other. Another instance, an H visa holder, who is a nonimmigrant, can be consedered a resident alien if they meet the substantial presence test, unless a income tax treaty prevents the tax residency status.

          When an applicant or petitioner applies for certain nonimmigrant or immigrant status, they have to call the IRS to provide the necessary information to USCIS. USCIS does not have the resources to ask for that information, and current federal guidelines prohibit such activities to prevent any nonstatuory misuse of said information.
