Taxes for IR1 -- what to do?
4:50 pm


Read 708 Times

Hi everyone,

So I am USC filed for my wife (IR-1 visa). So far we have our case pending at NVC for 5 weeks already. I've submitted all forms, paid all fees and mailed all evidence (financial and civil documents). With my I-864 Affidavit of Support form, I included emploeyer letter and tax transcript for most recent year (2016). When I filed my 2016 taxes in March, my accountant submitted everything electronically through software and he could not put NRA when filing as married, so I filed as single. I will amend my taxes when my wife is here, however, on my tax transcript it says "single". I have read a lot of topics here on VJ and online, and some people said it should not be a problem for NVC and CO. Again, everything is already submitted. Can you tell me what to do now:

1) Leave everything as it is and explain to CO that accountant filed electronically with no ability to put NRA and that we will amend taxes (I have this right for 2-3 years since done with taxes)
2) Amend taxes now, wait for it to appear in IRS system, order new transcript and bring to the interview (we are expecting to have it in August, so I have about 2 months for all this)
2) Amend taxes now (takes at least a month) and submit to NVC (it will reset our counter back to 11 weeks)

Last option is sucks so I need to avoid it. Do not tell me "fire your accountant", I know it. As far as I know, the only way to put NRA when filing as married is to file taxes by mail. He's not using TurboTax or something, he filed everything online.

Can someone tell me from their experience, how critical is it to have Single status in tax transcript? I think CO will look at everything else (evidence, marriage certificate, photos, trips together, etc) than this tax document. I make $100K a year so it should be enough for approval.

Appreciate all great answers, thanks.

Hello! We sent our AOS documents with advance parole and employment authorization to USCIS March 7. We have been waiting for our NOA1 letter about our paperwork. My husband by accident saw mailman n asked if it is something for us n he gave him letter for biometrics n said it was other emails on my name from them but he thought i am not exist n then it back to USCIS. So finally April 4 we got mail with appointment notice for biometrics (form i-485 and i-765) for April 20. We went to post office n they already sent it back n could not explain why they put other mails on my name in box but USCIS mails were send back. We was wondering where is other emails n called to USCIS to find out if they r returned. They said that we have to wait until they comes back coz they dont do copies. We checked our case status online n it says it already came back on May 25 and 27, that it could have serious affect on our case and we need to do chance of dress or ask them to resent them. I did form online to get them back n waiting for answer until May 24. When we called they said it is nothing we can do but send this form online n wait for answer on our request. Anyone had such problem before? I afraid that we might missed some steps. We did biometrics for i-485 and i-765. All we can do now is wait?

HELP! Sent IRS account transcript instead of tax return transcript

Hi everyone,

I was preparing my package for the NVC (I am USC filed for IR1). I did my taxes for the 2016. But I've accidentally by mistake mailed IRS tax account transcript instead of tax return transcript. WILL I GET ANY RFE or checklist?? I've mailed it like a week ago and they received it 4-5 days ago. Can I just mail the IRS tax return transcript now so they will receive it and attach to the package I sent earlier?? I am literally full of worries here now. WHAT SHOULD I DO?? Thanks for any help in advance.
