I don't think the feds are going to be interested in any sales tax paid. Paying back taxes to gain amnesty means anything associated with income taxes. Are the illegals really that dumb?

They don't need to be smart they have hundreds of advocates that will iron out the devious theft wrinkles for them.

Their motto; JUST SHOW UP.

I own a decorative concrete company in Phoenix and some of my employees are anchor babies. Those guys do have a lot of relatives who are illegals, or as they call them "*******s". I've been asked every question on behalf of the illegals and you can't imagine how sheltered in their own culture they are. The odd part is that the illegal relatives are my competitors in business, they do the entire job for what I pay my employees in labor. If someone complains they just change their companies name which entails printing different business cards and changing their craigslist ad. I know way too much about the life of illegals in Arizona, but I do have to know what I'm up against. Don't ever trust your contractors since its so easy to check up on them. If nobody uses the unlicensed illegals we won't have this problem.

You're assuming the federal government would really be honest about having them pay taxes. It sure wasn't honest with the requirements back in the 1980s when the amnesty was filled with fraud, and the government knew it.

Back then it was pretty much "come on over!!" and anyone who did was handed the amnesty.

Very likely a couple Walmart receipts will be all that is needed to show the illegal paid some taxes.

Yes - but you can't trust just the fact that someone has a green card. They sell those over and over - one guy here is a disabled green card holder, by his own admission, he's sold his green card at least 6 times, all he has to do is sell it which he does when he runs out of beer money, report it lost or stolen and the replacement arrives within a week.

Many green card holders have green cards that don't match their real names.

There is a lot of the name changing of companies that goes on here - they can just start over again when word spreads of shoddy work or failure to finish a job. Many probably first intend to do the work - they'll ask for money up front and people give it to them. Then they might show up a couple times and make a little effort but something else comes up and they lose interest in the job - or they're off finding new business because they need more money.
