Yes I am. That doesn't mean I'm exempt from paying taxes, unlike 2/3s of the illegals in the US who don't. Oh wait they do........................city tax. Do you work and pay taxes or are you on a government program (Disability?)?

The IRS/government looks closer at me - and I don't get a refund - while ignoring the 5 illegals - each who get a refund - who operate under one social security number
.

I noticed that you failed to respond. I think it's safe to assume that anyone who is so pro-illegal cannot be a taxpayer or pays very little into the system. I know that you have an emotional connection but I wonder about your taxpaying connection.

It's easy for an illegal or an American citizen that doesn't pay taxes or pays very little, can spend someone else's money, especially when it's self-serving.

This has been bugging me. We don't have a clue what the accurate population of illegals are, but you know that two thirds don't pay taxes?

I would say that many fewer than a third pay income taxes. Most illegals if they go to a Walmart for certain items or other store will pay some sales taxes but sales taxes are about the only taxes most pay.

Illegals aren't stupid after all -- they know if they steal someone's social security card to use to take one of those good jobs that Americans will do, that there may be taxes taken out but if they declare 8 or 9 children, they won't have to pay income taxes, they won't even be taken out. They may have to pay social security taxes which really chaps their hides because after all they are using a social security number to illegally obtain that job.

Illegals working as independent contractors almost never pay FICA or social security taxes. They simply don't file an income statement with the IRS. And absolutely nothing is done about it.

No, I tried to reassert how you were being affected by illegal aliens while living outside the United States...

Yeah, we are readying for whichever point my wife chooses to naturalize, and knowing how tax filings are examined for that occasion. But thanks for the assumption about paying taxes. I just get incredibly bored by entire topics pulled down by regulars and pop-ons that says things like "These DREAMers WON"T even have their GREAT-Grandmother stopped by ICE as THEY bring them acrossed the BOARDER, an she'll get that PR job with WELFARE bennys to be able to VOTE for Obama!".

As long as I am an American citizen that pays taxes, I am more than entitled to have a say than someone, regardless of their status, who doesn't pay taxes. I am still an American citizen with the right to vote and required to pay taxes, no matter what country I am in.

As a property owner in the US and required to pay property tax, can I go to the proper authority and tell them since I won't be living in the house for a few years I don't need to pay property tax?

I didn't assume anything. I asked a question. Sometimes silence is an answer in itself.

As to the highlighted text: where did that come from? But since you mentioned it, if someone is educated and qualified to meet the requirements of a PR job why would they need to enter the US illegally? Is Mexico suffering from a brain drain with educated Mexicans entering the US illegally who are taking the jobs "Americans won't do"?

You get bored? I guess it's pretty much the same way you bore people with your repetitive mention of your wife and/or childrens status in threads, which don't exactly pull a thread up.
