All tax returns (use transcripts for N-400 purposes instead!) since becoming a resident, but only up to 5 years, meaning if somebody had a Green Card for 20 years, she still only would have to submit the past 5.

I enclosed my original transcripts with the N-400 application and brought copies of them with me to the interview, but I'm not even sure that the I.O. even looked at them. Keep in mind, by the time the I.O. opens the file, the applicant had already sworn that everything she stated in the N-400 form is the truth, which includes "never having failed to file a tax return since becoming a resident."


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Hi Nick,

I applied based on being a resident for 5 years, not thru marriage and I did not include any tax returns on the application. During my interview I brought the tax returns with me but I was not asked for them.

I hope this helps

:thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: that's what i thought..!

I think tax returns are required regardless of applying based on 3 years or 5 years. Without being a "good" tax paying resident and the IRS has no beef with you, then you are clear.

Checkout the Naturalization guide http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/M-476.pdf or better yet, checkout document M-477 which is a Document Checklist for N-400 applicants...

Transcripts are indeed required...

Thought that was the case, we never submitted her tax transcripts with her application. But she did get a yellow letter telling her to bring her drivers' license or a state photo ID with her. She will bring her only four years of tax transcripts, not that she paid taxes, but got full refunds. But did have to pay full FICA taxes. Can't have any more than that, illegal for her to work under the age of 16.

Pleased she is not going today, 8 more inches of snow, what happened to global warming?

Ok so I reviewed the document. Page 3 of the document checklist or slide #52 of the guide... Says the tax document only applies to those who are seeking a status change based on marriage (3yr) or thouse who have been outside the usa 6 plus months and should prove they maintained their status/residency and can show evidence by including a tax return.

My interview letter (5 yr rule even though my green card was through USC marriage) only stated the following:

- NOA

- Green card

- Any evidence of Selective Service Registration

- Passport and any other documents used in connection with any entries into the USA

I do have a letter from Selective Service Registration stating that I did not need to register.

I was not asked for tax returns but to be in the safe side, I will request tax transcripts from the IRS for the last 5 years.

As far as I know the IRS only supplies transcripts for the past 3 years. I asked for more than 3 years and they sent back blank pages for those years saying they can only do 3 years. :bonk:

I used that 1-800 something 1040 number, keyed in my stepdaughters SS#, verified the address, and requested her returns for 2006, 7, 8, and 9, one at a time, that was as far back as I could go for her as any longer, she was under 16. About a week letter four letters came in from the IRS with those four returns.
