So if the joint sponsor's income exceeds the poverty limit...is the only evidence you need to submit the past 3 years tax returns?

Are W2s from the past 3 years need also? What about pay stubs?

Thanks!

All we submitted was IRS transcripts from the 3 prior years. That had all the info they needed. You can get them for free, IRS will mail them or even fax them to you, I think.

Please read the form instructions. Each of your questions is answered there.

If sending tax returns you must send EVERYTHING that you sent to the IRS, that includes W2s 1099s etc

If sending tax transcripts w2s aren't needed

pay stubs are your own choice.

Again. Please read the form instructions.

Read the step-by-step instructions that are included with the I-864, part 6. A copy of the tax return or transcript for the most recent tax year is absolutely required. You may include three years of tax returns or transcripts if you "believe it will help establish your ability to maintain sufficient income".

A "copy of a tax return" consists of every document that would be submitted to the IRS, so this MUST include W2's, 1099's, or any other document that would be required by the IRS when filing a paper return. Those documents are not required if you submit transcripts from the IRS instead of a copy of the tax return.

Part 6, section 23, says you may include "evidence supporting your claim about your expected income", which includes a letter of employment, pay stubs showing your income for six months, or evidence of other income (child support, interest or dividend income, etc.). This additional evidence is optional. In fact, the instructions say (in bold type) "You are not required to submit this evidence, however, unless specifically instructed to do so by a Government official.".

You do not need to bombard them with evidence if the joint sponsor is clearly eligible, and the tax returns or transcripts alone confirm this without question.
