Tax returns- Do I need official transcripts from IRS?

Hello,

I would like to know if I need to request the official transcripts of my last 3 years tax returns or if the actual printed and signed copies of the tax returns that I sent to the IRS will be ok? One last question on this subject. Very bad timing, but i was just laid off from work and am currently unemployed and starting my own company now, but have no official job. I plan to get a co-sponsor to meet the income requirements, but with that said, do I need my tax returns still? Any insight on this would be great.

Thanks!

Chris

There are not a lot of concrete statements about the I-134 evidence requirements. Generally it is better to prepare more than to have less. Many times the Embassy or Consulate will list the requirements for that locale.

It does not need to be tax transcripts, you can provide copies of your Tax Forms, 1040s, Schedules, W-2s and 1099s. Your fiancee should have the originals of the W-2s and 1099s but only to show at the Embassy if they ask to see those papers.

Tax returns are OK. For GUZ - bring 3 years of stuff. Tax transcripts are available same day via fax, as well.

For 'totality of adjudication', GUZ IV also looks at 'current income' as well as 'prior income' -

so suggest you get a co-sponser (another I-134), and have co-sponser show 3 years of tax data as well.

OTOH, if you have sizeable 'cash assets' then can use those, as well. See the I-864 instructions for the computations (GUZ IV uses those computations for assets, on the I-134, on interview day).

Good Luck !

Thank you both for your help. I will get a co-sponsor and also bring my 3 years tax returns and bank statements for verification. The timing of losing my job really really is very bad :(. Ok, thanks again!!!
