It is really going to depend on how thorough your employer is about researching the number. How did you prove that you were eligible to work? Are there others at your new job in the same situation?
I recently started a job and they gave me a w-4 to fill out that I need to give to my employer tomorrow. I only have an ITIN. Can i use this? I mean ultimately I use my ITIN to report my taxes.... or Do i need a ssn? Thanks in advanced!
Didn't you have to fill out an I-9? Didn't they ask for a photo ID and evidence of your lawful immigration status?
Legally, an ITIN is not in any sense evidence of work eligibility and if the employer checks the ITIN, it will not come up as valid. Basically, you are working illegally, no way around it. However, if he didn't even have you fill out an I-9 (really bizarre) then he's probably not going to research the number you put on your W4 either.
