Just wondering - I am a tattoo artist and therefore do not receive any pay stubs. Will bank statements showing regular deposits and perhaps a statement from my employer suffice for the AOS? I also have some money in savings if that helps...

we sent only tax returns for AOS no paystubs or anything like that. The tax returns are required.

Edit: just re-read your question and you arent talking about AOS your talking about the I-134 right? if so then yes, included paystubs, and tax returns.

It seems you need to do two things to cover your bases.

1) Document current income flow for this year. Show through some proof, either pay stubs or bank statements what you annual income will be for 2010.

2) Dig up at least one and preferably three years tax returns with W-2s or tax transcripts from the IRS.

Good luck.

Not all embassies/consulates approach the I-134 in the same manner. Some are very particular, others not as much.

Check with other VJ members in the regional forum to learn what to expect.

Document your income as best you can. Include income tax returns/transcripts, bank statements, employer letter. If you are self employed look at the I-864 affidavit of support instruction as the offer much more info than the I-134 instructions.

My fiancee (the petitioner) is a tattoo artist too.. so I think I see your problem which is probably this:

You make money in cash, some in tips, and generally you don't pay tax on it.

Is that right? We're in this position now, I think the consular interview and I-134 will be okay with a letter from employer, but not sure what will happen at the I-864 as they specifically request tax returns. This seems to be a nasty potential situation because if you show what you make and your tax records show no evidence of income tax you are basically sending evidence of tax evasion (which is fraud in the US I believe) to the department of homeland security.

I would love to hear from anyone who has been in this situation before..
