Aloha,

In supporting documentation for the N-400 (marriage related, one option is -

Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-certified copies of the income tax forms that you both filed for the past three years

Exactly how does a copy become "certified"??

Mahalo,

Phone the IRS and get your transcripts from the last 3 yrs (this is what they mean by certified...came directly from the IRS) - they mail them to you in 7-10 business days and most of us have gotten them even faster.

Sorry - the exact number escapes me at the moment but someone here will chime in. You'll need both your SSN and your husband's when you phone.

When we sent mine, I only used xerox copies of our ITR for the last 3 years, it's not even certified true copy at all. I didn't think we had any problems at all.

The copies (one for every year) the IRS send to you are certified copies of their original records.

i submitted my (original) copies with my N-400 application, and just put copies of the copies into my own file.

Frankly, the I.O. will just spend 6 to 8 seconds on having a quick look at them, mostly checking that you filed jointly indeed. The whole marriage thing is not an issue anymore at the N-400 stage. Trust me.


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.

I think it may have been 4-5 seconds actually ;) JustBob is right - it's a formality honestly, my IO last Weds spent minimal time on my evidence (I think she was late for a smoke break)
