Is it a crime to have two ITIN numbers?

While illegal immigrants have used ITIN numbers to work illegally, pay taxes, get credit cards, buy cars/homes, etc., that is not why these numbers are given and doing so is abusing the terms of the agreement with the United States Social Security Administration (SSA).  However, it is better to have an ITIN number and pay your taxes to Uncle Sam than to not have any number and not file your income tax return with the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  But relax, because under the provisions of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 (BSEOIM), working with a false Social Security number or using your ITIN to work are forgiven, and you will be approved for Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI) legal status as long as you pay all the taxes, in case you have not paid them yet.  If you have paid them, just attach copies of your tax returns with the application.


 

Now, why would you have two ITIN numbers?  Maybe for the same reasons you have two fake names?  As long as you can build your story and come up with all the needed evidence for your application to adjust your status to RPI immigrant, you will not have any problems, but you might want to use just one of these numbers for the application, and when your petition is approved and you are allowed to apply to SSA for a valid SSN, just write to the IRS to cancel your ITIN and transfer your records from the ITIN to the new authentic SS#.
