Can an Illegal Immigrant Get a Tax ID Number?

Can an illegal immigrant get a tax ID number?

Yes. The real questions is, how?

While some illegal immigrans think that they can’t get a Tax ID number, they sure can.

Probably not an SSN, but an ITIN.

Let’s explain how you may apply for an ITIN using the most common route – the tax return case.

How Illegal Immigrants Can Apply for SSN, Green Card or Citizenship

By having an ITIN and reporting 3+years in taxes, applying for a social security number, green card, or citizenship will be easier.

Immigration officers and judges look at a plethora of different variables in your case for…

  • Why should they give you citizenship or a green card?
  • On what basis?
  • Why do you deserve it?
  • Why would you be a good member of this country?

And one of the things they consider is something called GMC, which is good moral character.

To grade you on good moral character, they analyze since you ever came to the US…

  • What have you done?
  • Are you working hard?
  • Are you trying to earn an income, provide for yourself, or for a family?
  • Are you trying to report your income?
  • Pay taxes?

Why do they check you out on these?

Because they need valuable people within the country.

As long as you come to the US with good plans to contribute, immigration judges and officers will love your application.

So definitely having an ITIN and paying your taxes does improve your good standing for immigration processes.
