Per my research of the law and regs for SSNs, Uncle Omar Obama, Aunt Zeituni, and Brother Abongo Malik Obama Should Have ITINs not SSNs! This is my understanding of the law and regs regarding SSNs and ITINs. My oh my how many unusual SSNs of questionable provenance seem to run in the Obama family. | by CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret)
ITINs are given for tax reporting purposes to legal aliens in the USA. ITINs begin with the number 9 and have other unique number strings in other positions. Illegal aliens in the USA of course won’t apply for an ITIN since they are not in the USA legally. They simply buy a stolen SSN on the street and operate under the radar until caught. And then as we’ve seen, if after you are caught, the system learns you are related to Barack Obama you apply for refugee status and have the deportation order cancelled. Learn more about ITINs available to legal aliens living in the USA. What is an ITIN? Read this from the IRS site:
General ITIN Information
|What is an ITIN?
An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. It is a nine-digit number that always begins with the number 9 and has a range of 70-88 in the fourth and fifth digit. Effective April 12, 2011, the range was extended to include 90-92 and 94-99 in the fourth and fifth digit, example 9XX-90-XXXX.
IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but who do not have, and are not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
ITINs are issued regardless of immigration status because both resident and nonresident aliens may have a U.S. filing or reporting requirement under the Internal Revenue Code.
Individuals must have a filing requirement and file a valid federal income tax return to receive an ITIN, unless they meet an exception.What is an ITIN used for?
ITINs are for federal tax reporting only, and are not intended to serve any other purpose. IRS issues ITINs to help individuals comply with the U.S. tax laws, and to provide a means to efficiently process and account for tax returns and payments for those not eligible for Social Security Numbers (SSNs).
An ITIN does not authorize work in the U.S. or provide eligibility for Social Security benefits or the Earned Income Tax Credit.Who needs an ITIN?
IRS issues ITINs to foreign nationals and others who have federal tax reporting or filing requirements and do not qualify for SSNs. A non-resident alien individual not eligible for a SSN who is required to file a U.S. tax return only to claim a refund of tax under the provisions of a U.S. tax treaty needs an ITIN.Other examples of individuals who need ITINs include:
• A nonresident alien required to file a U.S. tax return
• A U.S. resident alien (based on days present in the United States) filing a U.S. tax return
• A dependent or spouse of a U.S. citizen/resident alien
• A dependent or spouse of a nonresident alien visa holder

When we learn the truth about Obama, possibly he should be using an ITIN too and not someone else’s Connecticut SSN. The total inaction by the controlling legal authorities in these matters is despicable. The Rule of Law is no more in this nation if this is allowed to continue. This is what happens when an unconstitutional person and criminal is allowed to be sworn in as president despite the howls and protests of hundreds of thousands of people calling for investigations before and after the popular election. The Congress failed us and their oath to the Constitution in 2008. It failed us and their oath in 2009. It failed us and their oath in 2010. It has so far failed us and their oath in 2011. No wonder the Congress polls so poorly regarding their job performance. They are no longer listening to and responding to the people’s concerns, only to their Washington DC inside-the-beltway political correctness type concerns instead of doing what is right and needed. How many Congresses do the people have to elect to get action from the authorities to get a proper investigation of the crimes of Barack Obama.
When will the Speaker of the House John Boehner call for and launch congressional investigations in the appropriate committee in the U.S. House of Reps, the People’s House, into the SSN fraud of Barack Obama and possibly others in his immediate family? If Boehner does nothing about investigating Obama’s criminal activities before and after entering the White House, he should not be re-elected to the U.S. House of Reps nor should any other member of the House who has not spoken out publicly and demanded an investigation of Obama’s crimes. Dittos for the U.S. Senators too but we only get a crack at 1/3 of them in 2012.
