Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) will push for a vote the week of June 24 on his amendment to the comprehensive immigration reform bill requiring immigration applicants to prove they have paid all back taxes.
Under the amendment unveiled June 12 by Hatch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), prospective permanent residents would be required to prove to either the Internal Revenue Service or the Treasury Department that they have paid all federal income tax, interest, and penalties owed for money earned in the United States (114 DTR G-9, 6/13/13).
“The reality is that there are 11 million people living with de facto amnesty--avoiding taxes and obligations that American citizens have,” Hatch said in a June 21 statement announcing his effort to get a vote on the amendment.
Whether the Rubio-Hatch amendment has the backing of fellow Republicans remains to be seen. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has said that although he supports the idea of requiring back taxes be paid by applicants, he was concerned that the auditing process would ultimately cost IRS more money than it would take in.
