I had a question regarding my past unauthorized work. I came to US while on a tourist visa but since overstayed. My husband and I are adjusting my status based on a marriage to my US citizen husband. My question is this: When I first came to US (legal entry with B2 visa), I worked under the table for a couple months while still in my teens (and did NOT file any taxes!). Its been over a decade since that happened and since then, I have not worked at all. Just that one time. I am wondering if during our AOS interview, the IO asks whether I have ever worked illegally in this country (US) and if yes (and assuming I have to state the truth), what are the reprocations/consequences that I will have regarding working illegally AND NOT filing any taxes. Will it be forgiven or will I have to pay taxes back?? Aby informaiton would be greatly appreciated!

I only did for the metioned time - app. 2 months, made few 100 bucks. Also, NO contract/agreement was drawn up by the employer so no W2s! Any informaiton would be greatly appreciated!

I also simply assume that the money you received a decade ago was below the limit where you were even required to file. All of this is irrelevant for AoS purposes and the only way to give it relevance is if you lie about this.

Generally, there is a 3-year statute of limitations for the IRS auditing a tax return and a 10-year statute of limitations for the IRS collecting tax.
However, the same doesn't apply to the states. California, as an example, has no statute of limitations, and once a resident of California, always a resident of California, no matter where you go in the world.
