If a company hires a person and this persons green card expired 2 years ago is the company in legal trouble and is the person required to pay taxes?

An illegal citizen is not required to pay tax because they are

not legal. If a company hires an illegal (whether they know about

it or not), they can get into serious trouble. * Undocumented

immigrants do pay taxes, unless the person is paid in cash,"under

the table". They also are subject to withholding of Medicare, SS

and so forth. They cannot file a claim for such benefits. Companies

who knowingly employ illegal immigrants are subject to severe

penalties. However, most illegal immigrant workers use false

documents and such documentation takes a considerable time to track

down. This allows workers to be employed for a few months at many

different jobs and the employer not to be aware of the situation

until receiving notification from immigration or SS agencies.
