Tax Rebate Checks Withheld from Immigrants

from Public Eye

As many as hundreds of thousands of taxpayers - from legal immigrants to soldiers based abroad - are ineligible for the tax rebate checks that started going out last week because of a provision aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from getting rebates. The rule unintentionally snares taxpayers who would have qualified for the bonus but for having filed jointly with a spouse whose immigration status doesn't allow a Social Security number. The Federation for American Immigration Reform lobbied against a version of the bill that didn't require a Social Security number for the rebate.
