AOS and Taxes for 2010

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

All,

I am stuck waiting for my employer to have a tax preparer complete my taxes for 2010 since I worked outside the US for most of last year. They need to secure tax documents from the countries where I worked, so all that will delay my filing this year..

I am ready, otherwise to submit my AOS forms, and would like to know, if I can go ahead and submit them now using my tax returns from 2007, 2008, 2009 Tax Years?

Thanks

Kenny

Yes. Taxes are not due until April 18, so they cannot expect you to have those filed before then. If you have an interview after April 18, they may ask for your 2010 tax return then. And, you have a choice to send in either last year's return only, or the last three years'. Last three years' is not required. Good luck.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

Thanks,

So, What other evidence can I show proving valid relationship?

We're on the bank account jointly, no other accounts to put her on.. she's on my lease as co-leaser, also on my health insurance, she has a cell phone bill comming to our home address.. I was also thinking the 2010 tax return was going to add to the evidence,, any thoughts?

K-1s are not required to show valid relationship to submit their AOS. That step is built-in to the K-1 visa process. The I-485 does not ask for any evidence of relationship. If you go to an interview (not everyone does), then they will ask for this evidence. They understand that newlyweds don't have a lot of evidence yet. You will have to prove your relationship is still valid after two years (the "removing conditions" process) or request a waiver (if you divorced). At that stage, you will have to show more evidence. For now, if you got an interview, a joint lease, joint bank account, and (at that time) a joint tax return sounds good to me.

Also, if you were not married by the end of 2010 (your sig doesn't say marriage date) you cannot file a joint tax return. If you got married in January, then you must file single for 2010 taxes. Good luck.

Absolutely correct. The same happened to me last year and at my wife's interview we were asked for the previous year's tax form.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
