It's not a loan of a tax return. It goes in the file and stays permanently. Tax returns are not specifically required unless self employed but they are a best practice. If the employer letter has enough information, it might just be sufficient.

True, but you probably shouldn't count on the employer letter being sufficient if you can help it. The directions on the I-134 may only explicitly state that you need tax information if you are self-employed, but note that you will eventually need to file an I-864 when you file for AoS (adjustment of status). Tax information IS required for the I-864, so it seems you will need it eventually anyway.

Why won't she give you her income tax return? Is it because she wants to keep her copy for her records? If so, she can request a free tax transcript from the IRS (which is better for immigration purposes anyway).

If she absolutely won't surrender her tax records, I'd highly suggest trying to find a new sponsor, at least by the time you need to file for AoS.

Good luck!

I don't know where you get that from what I wrote but no, I'm saying "loan" is not what the sponsor would be doing but if the employer letter has enough information, you may be ok without a tax return unless the sponsor is self employed. I take it they are not "self employed" because you have an "employer letter".

I don't know. I don't know what's in the employer letter and I said, "may be ok". It's imperative you learn to read carefully and interpret literally. It will save your bacon in this process.

If you have a co-sponser refusing to give you her tax return whether you may or may not need it at this point in time then it seems to me that you have a problem.

Additionally, the Manila embassy has a history of looking at co-sponsers for K-1 sometimes unfavorably.

If it was me going through Manila I'd most definately have a copy of her tax return or have a cosponser who would provide it because they will probably ask for it.

Not as yes or no they don't, then there's still the whole PI and co-sponsor question to deal with. Let's not have wishful reading here.

thanks for the reply,

i wish i can hear a definite answer.

thanks,

If I was you interviewing at Manila I would definately have tax returns for both you and your sponser.

It's a good idea but you nobody can even give you a definite answer whether the Consulate will accept the co-sponsor with or without the tax returns. Believe me, I know the value of a definite answer but you're not going to get one on this topic until the Consulate gives it to you.
