Hi!

If your wife's income is not sufficient she will need a co-sponsor. However, as she is the petitioner she will also have to sign a I-864 and she will have to show her last three tax returns. As a US citizen or LPR she must file US taxes, even if she lives outside the US.

I hope this helps!

Did your wife have a job or any income in the past three years? If she did, then she needs to file taxes. If she didn't she can just include a letter with her I-864 stating that she's had no income and therefore was not required to file taxes.

My wife she is the petitioner and she got her SSN in 2012 because she were living outside USA since she were child. At 2012 she not has job. -at 2011 she worked one year outside USA. Is she need to fill taxes by this situation?
An attorney said before she don't have to pay taxes because all money coming from scholarship.

She may not have to pay taxes but she has to file a tax return for the last three years at least. Filing taxes does not mean she has to pay taxes.

You're contradicting yourself, either her money is coming from a scholarship or she had a job, which is it? The years that matter are going to be 2010, 2011 and 2012. If she had a job or had any income in those three years then she needs to file a tax return. She will probably not owe anything since she can exclude her income using form 2555 but she still has to submit tax returns.

Dealing with scholarships can be tricky with regard to US income taxes. Amounts of scholarship money received which is over the amount spent on tuition and books can be taxable income. In the US students get a form from their school which states the amounts spent on tuition and the amount of the scholarship. I really have no idea how this would work with a foreign scholarship but I think you should seek someone who is knowledgeable in this area.

BTW, a USC must pay tax on all worldwide income. So if the USC worked in 2011, even though it was outside the US, she should have filed a return with the IRS, unless it was not enough to require filing (see above). As stated by Gegel and Roosha, even though she files, she may not actually owe any tax.
