Should I file my own taxes? Fake SSN?

Asked by: ralvarez 420 views YA Discussion

I have an ITIN and I use a made up SSN to work. Last year I just let my dad claim me as a dependent and gave him my school tax form and he gave me back $ 500. I let him claim be because i had made less than $ 3000 with the fake SSN. This year I made almost $ 10,000. My question is should I let him claim me as his dependent again or should I file my own taxes. If I let him claim me he will only give me back 500-800. Or should I try file on my own? If I let him claim me as his dependent will I ever be able to claim my taxes from the w-2s after I get my real SSN?

    Why would you use a fake SSN? You have created a big mess that will be nearly impossible to unwind. This potentially ruins your credit and/or job prospects for years to come. I cannot think of any advice to offer for resolving this current problem.

    Hire a attorney because sooner or later they will catch up to you, then you’ll have a real problem.

    NO NO NO and NO way at all that any of this can be done legally and what you and your dad has done in the past is also tax fraud so wake up in this world and learn what is RIGHT and what is WRONG when you do things in this way.
    Just keep it up and get ready for some much bigger problems that will be coming up for you and probably your dad also and you might end up NOT even getting this valid SSN card and number that would allow you to be able to legally work in the US to earn the income at some time in your future life time.
    And the problems will just continue to grow so do as you want to do it.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 01.25/2013

    You can not LET your dad claim you as a dependent. Either you are his dependent under the dependency rules or you are not. If you are in school full time and under age 24, you are probably his dependent. Read the 1040 instructions.

    If you made almost $ 10,000, you probably are required to file regardless of your dependent status. File your return using your ITIN (that’s what it’s for). Be prepared to explain why your W-2 shows an SSN, not your ITIN.

    Do you really think that the IRS is going to process a tax return associated with a “fake” SSN – the IRS pretty much knows what SSNs are valid which are not….

    So it’s either “fake” and won’t get processed OR it’s a valid SSN just not belonging to you = which mostly likely would mean you would get charged with identity theft.

    ~ I know people who don’t have the legal right to work in the US use “fake” and SSNs not belonging to them all the time = but those people usually don’t file taxes and are just happy they aren’t getting caught illegally working.

    There is no choice. If your father can claim you, whether he does or not, you lose your exemption and credits. Unless, of course you file a fraudulent return which it seems you are prone to do.

    You do of course realize that you are knowingly setting him up to be convicted of tax fraud, right? And you yoursefl have commited several types of fraud.

    You will never get anythign from the taxes paid by the fake SSN other than a stintn in federal prison for identity theft, tax fraud, tax evasion, etc.
