Depends on when you actually submit your I-864.

The sponsor must submit with the Form I-864 the sponsor’s U.S. Federal income tax return for the most recent tax year (that is, the completed tax year immediately preceding the date the sponsor signs the Form I-864). USCIS may generally expect a sponsor, after April 15 of any given year (or April 16 or 17, in a year in which April 15 is on a Saturday or Sunday), to have completed his or her tax return for the previous year.

- If the sponsor requested an extension, the sponsor should provide proof of filing for the extension.

- If the sponsor did not file a tax return, the sponsor must prove that he or she was not required to file.

- If a sponsor should have filed, the sponsor must file retroactively and provide proof of filing.

Note that U.S. citizens generally have an obligation to file a tax return on non-U.S. earnings even if there was no tax liability.

Example 1 : Sponsor signs the Form I-864 on March 1, 2008. The US Federal income tax return for 2007 is not due until April 15, 2008. Therefore, the sponsor must submit his or her 2006 U.S. Federal income tax return.

Example 2 : Sponsor signs the Form I-864 on May 5, 2008. The sponsor must submit his or her 2007 U.S. Federal income tax return.

Example 3 : Sponsor signs the Form I-864 on May 5, 2008. However, the sponsor also filed with IRS a Form 4868, obtaining an extension of the 2007 income tax filing deadline. The sponsor must submit his or her 2006 U.S. Federal income tax return.
