PDF Editor FAQ

Do undocumented immigrants pay taxes?

“Do undocumented immigrants pay taxes?”The key phrases here are: tax under-reporting, underpayment and tax evasionIt might be realistically said that illegal immigration is functionally equivalent to criminal tax evasion.As every pig-farm worker and dish-washer in the US knows, the more allowances you claim on a Form W-4, the less withholding there will be from your paycheck. Which means avoiding the payment of appropriate taxes.And in fact, some employers counsel illegal alien workers to write in quite inappropriately large numbers of W-4 allowances so that almost no withholding takes place.You can usually get away with this for many years, particularly because the average illegal alien worker uses falsified identity documents and the liabilities and penalties for under-reporting and failure to pay income taxes on earned income will fall on the actual owner of the purloined identity.Remember that there are two guilty parties: employers who unlawfully hire aliens and then under-report their earnings, and then the unlawful tax evasion on the part of the aliens themselves.Many employers go one step further, and collect withholding and other taxes from illegal aliens and then fail to deliver those tax monies to the applicable government revenue agencies.Then you must remember that very large numbers of illegal aliens work “in the black” — which means off the books. Paid in cash, no deductions for taxes.So the answer is: on the whole, illegal aliens represent a significant under-payment of taxes, and broad levels of criminal tax evasion.For some interesting specifics of one of a very large number of tax evasion scams, read this indictment.USA v. Khan, Docket No. 1:16-cr-10238 (D. Mass. Aug 18, 2016), Court DocketOr perhaps just read this summary:“ The Khan cases involved a common tax scheme where U.S. employers illegally hired undocumented workers. Federal law requires employers, like Khan, to withhold from their employees’ pay their shares of FICA (employment) taxes and federal income taxes. Those employers are required to pay over to the IRS the withheld funds and the employer’s share of FICA taxes, along with any corresponding income taxes owed by the employer and associated business. Accordingly, Khan was required every year to submit to the IRS Forms 940, 941, W-2, and 1120. Also, all employers, including Khan, must abide by the federal immigration employment verification system for purposes of hiring non-U.S. citizens. Khan was accused of violating these tax and immigration laws through the following acts.Khan owned several fried chicken restaurants in Massachusetts. Khan lied about his ownership and control over the restaurants. He significantly understated information to his tax preparers about employees, gross receipts, cost of goods sold, officer compensations, salaries and wages, and taxable income from his restaurants. This resulted in falsely prepared Forms 940, 941, W-2, and 1120. He also failed to issue accurate Forms W-2. Additionally, Khan paid employees in cash “under the table” and employed immigrants without legal work authorization.”Source: CHICKEN OR EGG? (TAX EVASION OR IMMIGRATION VIOLATION?)

How do you calculate R&D job tax credit?

Startup R&D tax credits are about to change dramatically. Traditionally, these tax credits were calculated and saved up against a Corporation’s annual tax forms. For startups that aren’t yet profitable, that meant that they would only benefit from these tax credits once they became profitable in future years.The PATH (Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes) Act of 2015 has changed all of that. Regulators acknowledged that the old R&D tax credits weren’t appetizing to founders if it only promised a potential future benefit that may never be realized. And so the R&D tax credit has been revised to give more instant gratification: R&D tax credits generated in 2016 can be used to offset payroll taxes come mid-2017.In prior years I’ve sometimes told my clients that the cost of performing an R&D tax credit study would outweigh the benefit.
