when I did the K-1 and first K-2 in Kiev my previous year's tax return was self employed. I gave the tax return, bank letter to cover that year. They glanced at it and detached it, handed it back to me and kept only the I-134. It is possible he looked at line 22 to see total income, he had it no longer to look at anything else. Nothing was notarized EXCEPT the I-134 and that is no longer required.

I think you are fine. If you can provide reasonable documentation of a current income meeting the guidelines you will not have a problem.

For us they took all the required forms and documents, looked at them. Glanced at the financial support documents (real quick glance) and didn't even care to see the evidence of ongoing realtionship except for four photos and then asked -0- questions. Just daid the visa was approved.

I am not telling you to go lightly...DO NOT go lightly, take eberything you have, then take some more. What I am telling you is prepare for the worst. It will likely be anti-climatic. Alla's response as we walked out was "I worried for THAT?"

I can't say that yet. Consider the following...

Your total GROSS for the year 2008 is NOT $75,000, it is $25,296 and that is not enough for a family of four. They will not use the gross business revenue, they use the GROSS personal income, line 22. Good thing last years tax return really doesn't matter, huh?

They DO NOT qualify you on last years income for this years requirements, they quaify you on CURRENT income. When you answer that question..."I derive and income of...." what is it CURRENTLY...today? What can you document? The best way for a self employed person to document this is by bank deposits IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS. What are your bank deposits to your PERSONAL account in the LAST 12 MONTHS? A bank letter is better than bank statements.

AT NO TIME are they interested in business revenue, except your schedule C and/or 1099s must be attached for showing source of income. You can use the amount deposited in your personal bank account in the last 12 months as your "current" income. OR you can take your personal income, year to date, divide by 9.5 (months so far this year) and multiply the result x 12. Which looks better? Use that one as your stated current income, attach your documents (bank letter or statements) to prove it.

Doesn't matter if you are INC or not. They DO NOT look at business accounts. If youa re paying your bills from this account (good way to save taxes) then it is not income to YOU it is income to the business and they are business bills (paying personal bills from a busienss account is a gross violation of tax law)

If you deducted your income as business expenses in order to avoid selfr employment tax (you did) then you have shot yourself in the foot.

AGAIN, last year's tax return DOES NOT MATTER and it is this years income (current) that will be regarded as qualifying you or not. IF you have been paying your expenses directly outof the business account and therefore redcuing deposits to your personal account, you have saved money on taxes and shot yourself in the foot for the interview and AOS.

They WILL NOT consider business account information.

If you cannot demonstrate adequate PERSONAL income for the interview, you need a co-sponsor. This topic has been covered here numerous times and how self employment and tax procedures can affect this.

Yes, you can include a P&L and they will consider the P.

I have a personal account and pay bills from it also. I understand how this works. I have alwas had my taxes done and did not take out my personal bills, I just only deducted what my quick books said my company has done and then that was my income. I get what you are saying.I have money put in my personal account every month so it may add up to what i need. If Now I have a co-sponser.

So you are saying a they may not let us have a Visa with a Co_ sponser?

I took the last 9 months like you said divided it by 9 and I came up with 3019.80 per month. I added my savings for the year and I came up with a grand total of 30198.07. And for saving that gives me 11'592.66 for the end of the year.

So I think Im okay. I can back this up with letter from the bank. So that would be all I need. So what do you think my friend?

Thank you for your help. You saved me alot of headack!!

:thumbs:

You would add together ALL money deposited in persoanl accounts for 9 months. Divide by 9 for a monthly avaerage. Multiply by 12 for a projected annual income which is supported by documents. State that as your current annual income on the I-134. Back it up with a bank letter showing deposits for last 12 months which should be roughly the same. You are good to go.
