I must say that our correspondance in this particular thread is rather disappointing. I would like to recap what I have learned throughout our
Q: I asked if there was a way to claim an infant without a social security number as dependant and if so could I amend last year's returns, pretty
A: "I would suggest you talk to an accountant about squaring away your tax return. The do-it-yourselfers can visit the IRS website at their own peril
to find forms and other information."
Understandably unsatisfied with the lack of substance contained by your answer I tried in ernest to get something of value by asking a specific
question along with stating my specific goal.
Q:Do you know if there is any requirement by law that a dependant must have a social security number?
A: "I do not think lacking a social security number is a defense to tax evasion."
Maybe I missed the part where there was even a hint of tax evasion
. I must say that you are one fantastic "lawyer" indeed. Never once
anwering a specific question, deferring questions to accountants who would presumably hire a "tax lawyer" for counsel if a law was in question, and
offering your own personal ideas on the difficulties of life without a SS#. Am I mistaken or did you ask us, to ask you, questions pertaining to tax
law? My BS radar has a huge pink dot the size of a urinal mint on it right about now.
Oh, and for the record, I have personally opened bank accounts (in the capacity of a banker) for people without social security numbers, there is a
standard legally and bank approved procedure. In my current position in the field of construction I can honestly say that I have been the only
person out of 100+ on my job site with a social security number on several occassions. Furthermore, it is my
opinion that offering any
amount of my son's future earnings to a system that no one argues is financially solvent (social security) and by all estimations will offer mine as
well as future generations zero benefit, is necesarily causing him harm.
