Husband didn't file 2014 ITR yet

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is currently deployed in GTMO (sept 2014- sept 2015) didnt file for 2014 ITR yet. He's planning to do it once he's back stateside and I'm scheduled for interview this June 1st. Today I received an email from IV process Manila that I need to bring the US Federal ITR for 2014. Husband told me that it is automatically extended since he serves in the armed Forces on deployment outside U.S..Should I be worried that this may cause delay of visa issuance?

Maybe you can bring a letter from him stating that he has a extension due to deployment? This along with copies of his orders, LES and w2's should do the trick. Can't he file it online or something? Guantanamo Bay should have internet access

If his paperwork and mail address and CPA is in USA it would be almost impossible for him to file on line.

I would think since he is deployed USEM has some sort of provision for that......

Thanks for the reply MrsRegie and VOL :). I'm on IRS site right now it says here "if you are serving in a combat zone or in a contingency operation, you qualify for extensions of deadlines. The deadlines for filing tax returns, paying taxes, filing claims for refund and taking other actions with the IRS are extended to at least 180 days after you leave the designated combat zone or contingency operation".. I will bring along copies of his order, LES and W2's as what iammrsregie suggested.

You could also get the ITR for 2013 just in case. Don't have to present it but if 2014 is not available then at least you have 2013.

I believe the verbiage "most recent ITR" (or something close) is used. If 2013 is his most recent, then use that. He is well within the law of not filing for 180 days past the deployment termination date. To be safe, I would bring the 2013 ITR transcript as well as a copy of his deployment orders showing anticipated date of return.
