Young Undocumented Immigrants Pay $2 Billion a Year in State and Local Taxes

Center on Budget & Policy Priorities - Immigrants who came to the United States as children and benefit from the 2012 executive action that gave them temporary legal status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program pay $2 billion a year in state and local taxes that support schools, health care, and other essential services, a new study by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy finds. And they pay a larger share of their incomes in state and local taxes than the top 1 percent of taxpayers do.
