That info cannot flow without a strong case and a court order. I don't see that happening anytime soon though.

I probably wouldn't chance it to file either if I was them. And neither would you.

If an illegal is using your SS number, don't expect for SS to let you know, so you could be one of the million taxpayers that had their SS number stolen by an illegal alien, "undocumented" my behind! IRS doesn't tell 1 million taxpayers that illegal immigrants stole their Social Security numbers - Washington Times

I suspect all this information being withheld on illegal aliens will start to seep into the open and make them an easier catch. These days, it is just too simple to get info by hacking, so why bother going through channels?

On another site, someone claimed the IRS notified them that someone attempted to use their SS number. I was surprised at that since this thread says the IRS won't tell you.

In order to file you MUST provide your Social Security number.

How can thy do that LEGALLY?

If they are illegally they do NOT have one or stole someone elses.

Your anger is placed on the wrong venue, I believe the bigger problem is not so much illegal aliens not paying taxes, don't get me wrong it is a problem, but the bigger problem is employers paying illegal aliens under the table and avoiding paying things like shared FICA taxes including Social Security.

It is for LEGAL aliens and others, NOT ILLEGALS which is the issue at hand.
