They write me:

Sbmit a complet Federal Income tax return submited to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from the petitioner/sponsor on form I-864, Affidavit of support, for the most recent tax year

If you were not required to file a Federal income tax return under U.S. Tax law, attach a written explanation and if applicable, evidence of the exemption and why you are subject to it.

Most recent tax year for which they can require sponsor to have filed tax return at this time is 2010.

Send them COMPLETE sponsor's tax return for tax year 2010, or (only if already filed) for tax year 2011.

Tax returns for the previous three years must be submitted if the USC was required to file. If the USC was not required to file (such as not having any income, or making less than the minimum requiring a filing) then a written explanation must be submitted.

Since your wife didn't work in 2010 then the appropriate response to the RFE is a letter stating that she was unemployed for that year and was therefore not required to file a return.

Just as an FYI, I made less than the minimum requiring a filing in 2008, so when we submitted AOS in 2010 I just sent my 2007 and 2009 tax transcripts and a paper stating the reason for not having a 2008 filing. We had no problems from that.

I can't really think of any proof that could be used to show that she didn't work. I think a signed letter swearing she didn't work in 2010 and therefore was not required to file, should be enough.

I think you might get caught here regarding the 2011 return though. It's very close to April 15th right now, so they might want to see her 2011 return. I'd get her return filed and send that documentation too to be safe.

Filing deadline this year is April 17th. Otherwise, yes to everything you've said.

These are the notes in the Adjudicators Field Manual regarding proof that a sponsor wasn't required to file a return:

Typical proof that a sponsor was not required to file a tax return for a particular year would consist of a written statement from the sponsor, signed under penalty of perjury, attesting to the amount of his or her income for the relevant year and to the fact that a tax return was not required by law. USCIS adjudicators handling Form I-864 issues should be aware of the income threshold for the requirement of filing a tax return for the last several years, so that an
RFE
for evidence of the law is not necessary. In particular, the Instruction booklets for each year’s Forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ specify the income threshold below which a person is not required to file a return.

Just signed.

I'm not sure how quickly she could get a tax transcript after filing, but if she makes copies of all the docs she submits to the IRS then I think that's enough. Someone else might know exactly which forms. I ordered tax transcripts for my submissions.
