Here is my story... in 2007 I moved to Italy for two years. I was not working because in Italy it is impossible to get a working visa. I have no clue what to write in my explanation letter of unemployment and why i did not file taxes for 2007 and 2008. Is there any special requirements needed on the letter.

I think that if you are single and earned under a certain amount (not sure but I think under like 10k???) you do not need to file a return. But you will have to explain that to them with the AOS...

I would just simply write:

"As per guideline of the Income Tax filing requirements, I was under the threshold to file." Include a copy of the legislation that shows the filing guideline and proof of your income level.

Montreal: BEAT!!! Approved!!!!!

Saw this in another thread... A suggestion of what to write

So it sounds like your statement should say something like--

I have not included tax returns for the years 200x and200x for the following reasons:

-- in the tax year 200x my income was $0.00???? and according to IRS guidelines I was not required to file a return .

-- in the tax year 200x my income was $???? and according to IRS guidelines I was not required to file a return .

And include a statement like

I, Mary Jane Smith, certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the information I have provided in this statement is true and correct.
