Hi again VJ

My husband and I were curious if his PREVIOUS years tax returns will have an effect on our approval.

After an excruciating time of unemployment he is now working again (as of December) and now meets the requirements, but for the last few years did not.

Does anyone know if his past few years will be an issue?

As they're primarily concerned about current income, you should be fine. Be sure to include good evidence of his present employment and income (i.e. paystubs, letter from employer etc.).

He could be questioned about his lack of past income in relation to the certainty and stability of his present income, so it may be a good idea for him to include a signed letter explaining the circumstances of his unemployment/lack of income in the previous years, showing that it was just a temporary situation.

Having a joint sponsor lined up just in case you're asked may also be a good idea.

But you should be fine with some good evidence of present income and an explanatory letter about the past years.
