IRS transcript or tax return

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello, one more question concerning my K1-interview:

my fiance does have his IRS-transcripts.

because he did his taxes online he does not have his tax returns Form 1040.

now my question is: do we need the IRS transcript and the tax returns or just one of the two? if we have the IRS transcript, do we still need the tax return form 1040 for the interview?

thank you for helping me out here.

If a person has income from employment (other than self-employment) a tax return is not complete without a W-2.

Neither is a copy of the tax return.


But if is the copy they will ask for the W2?

From the I864 instructions:

"If you provide a photocopy of your tax return(s), you must include a copy of each and every Form-W2 and Form 1099 that relate to your returns. Do not include copies of these Forms if you provide an IRS transcript of your return(s) rather than a photocopy."
