most recent tax returns?

Hi everyone,

Quick question about my wife's upcoming interview in Montreal. Her interview is on April 13th, in less than a week. She has my 2013 tax return, my household members and my joint-sponsor's as well (all 2013 taxes, all filed in april 2014). We haven't done our 2014 taxes yet (this year) and because of the date that the interview is falling on, it might not be possible that I can send them to her if I finish mine. Even though I might be able to email mine and my household members, the joint sponsor is a business owner who will NOT have them done (filed) before the interview. Is it ok to not send them and just use the 2013 ones? If the interview was in May or beyond, yes, I'd definitely have them done and sent to her to use the current ones. But the interview falls before taxes are due this year.

What would you good people recommend? Should I be ok with just keeping the same ones (2013 returns), or do I NEED to send this year's ones (2014 returns), even though our taxes aren't done yet? Thanks.

The current year's tax return is 2013 until midnight April 15th when you have to file and pay your 2014 tax return or file an extension and pay all taxes due. The USCIS could give you grief about waiting until the last minute, but the IRS gives you until midnight of April 15th to MAIL your return. Take what you have. The worst that can happen is they ask for a copy of your 2014 taxes to be delivered after the interview so make a complete copy of all forms submitted--i.e. use the mail tax return option even if you file electronically so you have a complete tax return to give to the USCIS if they ask for it.

Even if it was afterwards they sometimes ask for an updated tax return and sometimes don't. They did for Saylin but didn't for mine. Maybe because my husband works for the federal government or is a veteran.. I don't know.
