Today I got a RFE letter from USCIS asking us to submit all supporting tax documentation (W-2s, 1099s, Form 2555, and all supporting tax schedules) for the most recent tax year.
It also indicated that my sponsor's (wife) income did not meet 125% poverty guidelines!
To make it clear, at the time we filed our AOS application we didn't have Tax returns for this year (2016), so we sent Tax returns from last year (2015) - those forms showed that she only made 12000$ a year because she worked 6 months by the time she had to file for taxes. The new taxes will show that she makes 26000$ a year ( we are waiting for IRS to mail them )
Since we only have W-2s, I would like to know:
Do we have to file for 1099, Form 2555, and tax schedules? or they are included in the forms we get from the IRS?
and more importantly I would like to know if we should send Tax returns and wait for their answer about meeting 125% poverty guidelines? or should we start looking for a co-sponsor?
USCIS gave 87 days to submit the evidence requested.
