I have been living in the USA more than 6 year ( overstayed visa)
I was working thru subcontractors in the USA,fr paychecks and they didn't withheld any money for taxes.And I didn't pay taxes or filed, because I was afraid to be caught from Immigration.
Last year receved my EAD as a beneficiary with my wife. And requested my 1099-MICS form. For 2012 from company whom I worked many years. Filledthe tax form and ready to pay to Government what I owe.
Question is: Do person gets trouble for not paying taxes untill they receive their EAD like in my shoes ?
Please advise me
Whether you are working legally or illegally in the United States Uncle Sam wants his money. Your immigration status is irrelevant to your tax obligation. Your belief that filing a tax return would result in the IRS notifying the Department of Homeland Security was misplaced. The IRS is not allowed to share that information. Consult with an an accountant who can help you pay your back taxes so as to avoid unnecessary penalties and interest.
