Is it tax fraud if an illegal alien works here on a tax i.d. number and uses tax credits?

Asked over 3 years ago - Richmond, VA

Is it tax fraud if he has overstayed a visitors visa by 4 or so years but has his own "business" and employees (sub-contractor) and does all this on a tax i.d. number. He also uses a tax credit for a citizen child that he hasnt established paternity yet with and is not on the childs birth certificate?

    Answered . And you know all this how? If you obtained this information by illegal means, you yourself could face prosecution and/or a lawsuit. And, if you are basing this on belief and assumption only, you could face a lawsuit for libel and defamation.

    The statement above is general in nature, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review... more

    Answered . How on earth did you obtain these information about someone else?

    If he works, pays taxes and claims child tax credit, is that tax fraud?


    Goodluck.

    Answered . This is a duplicated question. Since this is not you, one wonders why you care. If he is here "illegally", he cannot be legal. Often aliens use a TIN to pay taxes which may or may not help them with citizenship down the road. This should be posted in immigration for a better answer.
