I kid you not

It might surprise you as it did me that the labor laws exempt most farm workers and in particular illegal alien agriculture workers are exempt from paying Social Security taxes. So, the next time someone tells you that all these undocumented workers are paying taxes, they actually don't, unless they own a car and pay the federal gasoline tax.

For a reference you need only Google "who is exempt from fica"

Since the claim has been made

Since the claim has been made that illegals are paying income tax via the ITIN, I'd like to see stats on exactly how many people are actually doing so... IRS should have stats on that, right?

Toolsmith: Why do you think

Toolsmith: Why do you think the government doesn't really know how many illegal aliens there are in the country? How would the IRS know?, Only if the illegal alien files a return and if his income is paid in cash daily he doubtless files any returns. The illegal aliens covered by the law are those who have been caught and let go awaiting their deportation hearings, which no doubt will be months if not years away and in the meantime can now be legally hired by firms such as Purdue and all the other agriculture related employers who now can pay their employees any wage that will get them to work. No health insurance, no FICA and exemption from the Wage and Hours Act as well.
