Well, i want to bring my pregnant wife here. We got married 3 months ago, and now i'm back in the U.S. Thing is, i don't have tax records. I don't file them because i work for my dad's company and he pays me in cash. Anyway, im also a college student so i dont work full time anyway, so i can't prove that i can't support her. My question is, can i use my parents icome tax forms to bring my wife her saying theyll help us finacially?

Income is income, no matter how you come by it. Ask Al Capone.

You really need to file income tax returns. You may want to clear this major problem first before thinking about immigration.

If they qualify they can do a co sponsor. You still need to file tax returns or sent a letter explaining why you didn't have to.

If you are a full time student and your father gives you an allowance for doing some chores around his shop, then just let your parents be a co sponsor. If your parents are claiming you as their dependent on their taxes, I would leave the IRS alone.

You still have to write a letter, as to why you did not file a tax return.

BAD ADVICE

Doing something illegal is not the right way to start off on this journey I would refrain from making comments about such things

"illegel yes but anything for love"

A reminder that it is a violation of the TOS for VJ to support, recommend or condone doing anything illegal during the visa process. Anything for love is NOT the route to go if it involves something illegal. Please do not repeat this violation.

No, "they" cannot. One of them can if one of them qualifies.

From the I-864 Instructions (page 8):

If you were required to file a Federal income tax return during any of the previous three tax years but did not do so, you must file any and all late returns with IRS and attach an IRS-generated tax return transcript documenting your late filing before submitting the I-864 Affidavit of Support. If you were not required to file a Federal income tax return under U.S. tax law because your income was too low, attach a written explanation. If you were not required to file a Federal income tax return under U.S. tax law for any other reason, attach a written explanation including evidence of the exemption and how you are subject to it. Residence outside of the UnitedStates does not exempt U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents from filing a U.S. Federal income tax return. See "Filing Requirements" in the IRS Form 1040 Filing Instructions to determine whether you were required to file.

You, your wife, and parents need to do some reading to familiarize yourselves with the process and the commitments.

Can't i just say that i made less than 5,000 doing chores for my dad at work, and that i depend on them since im a college student, and use their tax files as co sponsers?
What Anh Map said: "You, your wife, and parents need to do some reading to familiarize yourselves with the process and the commitments." The VJ Guides (atop every forum page) will be your best friend, if you can read accurately and interpret literally.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

I didn't have to file taxes when I was a fulltime college student. My family just didn't hand me over money, I had to do chores at my families business and I received an allowance. So please explain to me why would I need to send a letter explaining why i did not file taxes when I had no income to report? We get allowances here in America but of course you do know that by now? Last time I check allowances is not considered income by the IRS. My parents claimed me on their taxes all the way through Graduate School.
