I am very new to all of this. My husband and I are planning to file AOS together since I'm already living in the US. I've been here for the last 9 years on student visas.
My husband didn't file a tax return for 2013, as he was overseas and didn't collect income above the filing requirements. - We will send a statement explaining this
2014 he filed and for 2015 we are currently preparing a late return.
His 2015 income exceeds the poverty limit for our household size (just me and him).
I am worried because he doesn't currently work "on the books" anywhere.
He is in the process of starting a LLC and in the time leading up to it, he just takes cash.
Will it be ok to just put the cash amounts as income and say that he is doing personal training? He doesn't have any pay stubs or employment letter to show.
Should we submit a statement explaining that he plans to start his business this year?
Should we say he is unemployed?
Since I've been living in the US for a while now, is there any way my tax return can be taken into consideration? I have had a jobs in 2015 and will be able to return to my current job after the AOS is done and my EAD arrives (unless of course this ends up being super delayed because of the tax/work mess).
Any help is appreciated!
