Is it a problem if I have stapled all the tax returns together

separating each year? Not sure if that is frowned upon and I

could not find any information regarding that.

Thanks for all your help :)

Robert

No problem.

Its not a problem but USCIS prefers ACCO fasteners as it is easier to disassemble,and I think it looks more proffesional. Use two hole puncher on top and separate each year by fasteners.

Here's an interesting USCIS link Tips for Filing Petitions and Applications to the National Benefits Center, which is where AOS is filed.

See #3

Use paperclips when attaching supporting personal documents to forms (do NOT use ACCO fasteners; staples are acceptable when attaching fees).

Like you, Robert, I stapled the tax returns together, and then paperclipped them with the rest of the supporting docs to the application.

In preparing your packet, please take note of the following:

  • Do not use binders or folders that cannot be easily disassembled.
  • Use ACCO fasteners to hold together thick or bulky applications or petitions. Two-hole punching the top of the material for easy placement in the file is appreciated.
  • The use of tabs assist in locating items listed as attachments. The tabs should be placed on the bottom and not the side for ease in filing.
  • Avoid using heavy-duty staples; instead use ACCO fasteners or heavy clips.
  • Avoid submitting originals unless specifically required. Avoid submitting oversized documentation when possible

i know that acco fastener is a no-no.. :no:

even at our local embassy they say that..

binder clips and paper clips are in.. :thumbs:

besides the OP is just askin abt the tax docs not for the whole AOS docs..

so staples or paper clips are fine.. IMO :yes:
