My wife is applying for naturalization through the N400 form/application. Everything went well on the application; she was scheduled for her interview; which she attended. She was given the reading, writing and knowledge tests and passed them without any problem. However.... The interviewer said that he could not approve the N400 application because of past due taxes on my part. I am on an installment payment plan and am current on the payments. However, I neglected to include the Injured Spouse tax form in the application packet. He said that I needed a statement from the IRS stating that I am on a payment plan and that I am in "good standing" on the plan. He also said that any transcripts I would submit (Tax return or account transcripts) had to have a stamp from the IRS showing it was official and genuine. Thus is the problem. When I went to the IRS to get the statement, the IRS official said he could not do any of that... that such was against IRS policy. He said that the Department of Homeland Security and USCIS knows about that but keeps asking for such things. Therefore, my wifes' application may be denied because one agency doesn't want to do what is needed by another.

Does anyone know how to deal with this situation? We have a 4 week deadline to get these documents to the interviewer...

Thanks in Advance!

Lawyer can't do anything. All you need to do is to provide an official tax letter stating your payment plans, pretty straightforward. IRS will be able to provide you that, go to your local irs and talk to an agent, they will help you out.

Then you need to request to talk to a supervisor, I don't know any agency in the US being unreasonable for official statements, go to another IRS or talk on phone with help line.
