7year old boy owes back taxes on $60,000 does it concern you with the right documents illegal gets all this?

CARPENTERSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Police in a Chicago suburb say the Internal Revenue Service has told a 7-year-old boy he owes back taxes on $60,000 because someone else has been using the youngster's identity to collect wages and unemployment benefits.

Officers in suburban Carpentersville said Friday the second-grader's identity has been in use by someone else since 2001.

Detectives have filed a felony identity theft charge against 29-year-old Cirilo Centeno of Streamwood, Ill.

They accuse Centeno of using the boy's personal information to collect more than $60,000 in pay and services while working three jobs. They say he also used the boy's ID to buy a truck, pay bills and even collect unemployment benefits.

Now will the illegal possibly be deported and the 7 year old boy will have a structured repayment plan worked out for him by the IRS to repay the owed back taxes and accumulating interest and late fee’s on his SS# or risk going to jail for failure to pay those taxes? What is your take on this ?

Now, why is it that the AP felt it necessary to omit the fact that their criminal subject is an illegal alien?

    The Federal Government should be held responsiable. They have been able to make a tamper proof identification document that could be read in any office of the land and they stalled. They stalled under the Democrats who wanted them as new party members.. and they stalled under the 'Big Business' republicans. The Party leaders should pay that bill. Pay all of them in this category in fact.

    While I wouldn't put it past the IRS to try to collect from a 7 year old, it's highly unlikely to happen. First, since someone has been charged with identity theft, they are aware that it's -that- person who owes. And if they refuse to acknowledge, it's a simple case for a tax lawyer - people successfully sue the IRS all the time.

    One of the more common ways for illegal aliens to work here in the U.S. is if their family member pops out a kid. They then apply for an SSN immediately, and then the parents start handing out the information to friends and family of the right gender. There have been cases of small children being "employed" at six or seven different jobs, because all those people are using his/her identity. More commonly, a father or mother will use their child's identity and name the child after the parent so that the parent can easily get all sorts of supporting identification in the right name.

    I had a very good Friend that was victim to identify theft by an illegal alien. She was totally unaware her name and social security number was being used by the illegal. By the time she found out he was using her information she was all but broke. The illegal was caught but she never got a dime back. He had made a down payment on a truck that went back to the dealer and he had bought a lot of stereo equipment that the family (legal immigrants) he was living with got.

    He won't have to pay, but it'll take a Congress person that gives

    a goody good hot sh*t!

    or after his parents spend a mint!

    The IRS stance will be until they prove that the boy isn't a

    independently wealthy heir.(smile)

    The guy also bought a truck,

    the mother filed a 2005 police report?

    and claimed him on her 2007 taxes?

    I think the mother has amnesia a bit! So she

    didn't file in 2006?.....he bought the card for $50.

    Maybe the mother sold it several times herself????

    You still have to file a tax return if you are under 65yrs and

    have any sort of other income alimony etc?

    Given that Carpentersville is a suspected hotspot of illegal aliens in the Chicagoland area, I would be surprised if the parents weren't involved.

    No way they are going to try and collect the money back from the kid, now that the fact he is a victim of a crime has been exposed.

    And I have been quite concerned for some time about identity theft and how innocent people are so badly impacted.

    The 7 year old boy won't be liable for any of this.

    If the kid's lucky they'll get IRS to fix things fairly fast.

    The illegal should do hard-time in prison before being deported.

    The boy owes nothing and if the government can't see that, it's time for a new government.

    sounds like the govt should have checked the date of birth of the SSN. The illegal immigrant is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
