Hey guys,

So still waiting for packet 4 from the Montreal consulate, but trying to prepare everything the best I can right now... My fiance's father is going to be our co-sponsor, and has all his tax stuff, but he's telling me the last 3 years worth is amounting to over 200 pages! I think all we need are 1099 and W2 forms right? Which I think would only be a page or so? Not totally familiar with US tax documents so trying to get an idea here from people here who have gone through this!

Does he need to send me stacks of paper of his ENTIRE returns? Or a few select pages will suffice? Seems insane to need the whole packages... this will also be combined with employment letter and bank info. Thanks in advance for any help and sorry if the question is a bit confusing!

EvanB,

Your co-sponsor should request tax "transcripts" from the IRS. He can do this online. A transcript is a summary of all the lines on the 1040 and/or 1040A and/or 1040EZ, plus all the other input. This will cut down the paper tremendously. USCIS/NVC prefer transcripts to tax returns anyway.

2012 and 2013 transcripts should easily be available. 2014 transcripts might not be ready yet - so you may have to copy the 1040, any W-2s, and all 1099s for the 2014 tax year. If the sponsor filed early, 2014 might be available by the time you get Packet 4.

Good luck!

Online system seems to be down at the moment, but you can order by mail or phone. If you have a local IRS office, you can also walk in and get the transcripts there in person.

You may also call our automated phone transcript service at 1-800-908-9946 to receive it by mail. Please allow 5 to 10 calendar days for your transcript to arrive by mail.
