IRS Report: Illegal Aliens Using Stolen Identities of 1.4 Million Americans To Pay Taxes

Tax season may be over, but next year’s taxes will be due before we know it—and at least 1.4 million Americans won’t know that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security numbers are being used by illegal aliens. An Internal Revenue Service report that this is roughly the number of illegal aliens who are using stolen identities when it comes to file taxes.

Cases of employment identity theft can cause significant burden to innocent taxpayers, including the incorrect computation of taxes based on income that does not belong to them. To compound the problem, the IRS is not allowed to talk with Homeland Security to help agents identify who and where those illegal taxpayers are or contact the citizens whose identities have been stolen.
