New IDEA (Illegal Deduction Elimination Act)
NumbersUSA's Position:No Position
The bill would make wages and benefits paid to illegal aliens nondeductible for federal tax purposes. More specifically, it stipulates a retroactive six year limitation on assessment and collection, giving the IRS an incentive to collect due taxes. Furthermore, New IDEA makes E-Verify a permanent program, gives employers “safe harbor” when using E-Verify to confirm employment eligibility of their workers, and requires the IRS, Social Security Administration, and Department of Homeland Security to share information and work with each other on investigations.
