Question about Tax returns with N-400

Hi All

I am currently eligible to file for Citizenship based on 3 years of marriage. I have read through the requirements and I was wondering if it was Mandatory to send in 3 years tax returns or if 2 would be ok. Basically didnt earn enough and was only here a small part of the year in 2004 so didnt have to file them, so only have 2005 and 2006. Would it be better to wait until I have my 2007 taxes filed before I send in application, or would it be ok to send it in with 2 years worth.

I suppose my question is, is that something that is REQUIRED, or just something that is REQUESTED.?

Thanks in advance

Jelly

I thought even if you didn't earn enough to pay taxes you still had to file the return.

I arrived November last year but our accountant said I still had to do a tax return and did a joint return for both of us.

Doesn't much matter, if you don't send them now they'll probably just ask for them later, at least that's what's happened to my friends who got citizenship.

However, the directions on the form do say that in lieu of transcripts you can send other evidence of joint financial arrangements like bank statements and mortgage/lease.

what do you mean later? when later?

i'm planning to send bank statement , mortgage and my children birth certificate, is that enough? or do you think they will ask the tax returns?

can you please answer.

thanks.

I have 2 friends who did not provide tax returns with the original application who were told at interview that they could not be scheduled to take the oath until they sent in the tax returns.

thanks for your replies

I think we will just wait until we have filed our 2007 taxes, saves complication and I suppose there is no real rush anyway, just want to get this last hurdle over and done with as quickly as possible I suppose

thanks
