I have a quick question about the I-864. As far as I can see, I need to include a copy of 2005 tax return or tax transcripts for every sponsor, or include an explanation as to why they are not available. Now my problem is, my joint sponsor hasn't filed tax returns for 6 years, so first of all would the W-2 be enough? and second of all, would my joint sponsor get into trouble with the IRS this way?

Thanks, Michael

Well all I know is they are not too understanding on not having the tax returns, having seen other posts. As for the other issue of getting into trouble, I doubt it but there is a risk he might. I think you may have trouble with this person as a sponsor though, but others will confirm.

Good Luck

I agree with Sarah, they are going to want to see the tax return of your co-sponsor, as for him not filing tax returns, if he has made more than 10,000 in a year, the IRS is going to have a problem with him not filing tax returns for the past 6 years, they are definitely not going to like that at all, if they were to find out.

Hello and good luck

I’m not passing judgment on your co-sponsor for their reasoning for not filing taxes, but do you really want someone like that to be helping you out? It is will only opening them and you to further investigation. Remember this person is taking personal financial responsibility of you during the immigration process. Not filing taxes shows a lack of responsibility and the USCIS will not look very highly on that. All in all very bad. Remember you are signing all those papers and if the USCIS thinks you are lying, making false statements or not telling the complete true your AOS/EAD/AP will come to a stop, possiblly for good. Are you will to risk that?

USCIS doesn't ask for all that info for nothing, I would think most of the time it is check against real data.

Why don't you get a joint sponsor who has sufficient income and who paid taxes? It's not required that the joint sponsor be a close relative - in fact, it could be anyone who meets these criteria: has sufficient income and pays taxes.

Michael,

Let's start with an explanation as to why your Joint Sponsor has not paid taxes. If it's a legitimate reason under the tax laws then the explanation should be a satisfactory substitute for the return.

timelena,

paying taxes is not a criteria.
