Public Description:  

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.

To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to clarify that wages paid to unauthorized aliens may not be deducted from gross income, and for other purposes.
