I have been here for the last years working as a cleaner and want to stay if immigration reform is passed..I have not ever filed tax returns and a friend told me that I should start paying taxes if I want to be eligible..not sure what that means as I cannot afford to pay back taxes and filing April 30th seems like I would just alert the government to being here.
In most situations where a program or law is passed an applicants proof of presence in the usa is their tax returns. Thus in most cases it is wise to do so.
I would assume filing of taxes would be a necessary step.
