It’s Tax Season, Even for Undocumented Immigrants

With April’s tax deadline approaching, people in the US are starting to organize their paperwork. It may come as a surprise to some that many undocumented immigrants also pay taxes.

Listen to Aurora Almendral’s report on undocumented taxpayers produced for our media partner PRI’s The World.

Read Aurora’s report on how the requirement to pay back taxes may put the path to legalization out of reach for some undocumented immigrants.  Click here.
