I-864 Affidavit of Support form question - I've received 2 different answers

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please pardon me. I must ask this question once again due to the fact that I have received 2 opposing answers.

#25. Federal income tax return information.

I have not filed a tax return in 2008, 2009 because I was in college and unemployed.

I did file in 2010, even though I was employed during October – December 2010.

I will be filing on April 14, 2012 since it's the earliest appointment I could get with my accountant.

QUESTIONS:

1) Should I check the 1st box which states, "I have filed a Federal tax return for each of the three most recent tax years…"? Again, literally it says "three most recent tax years," which is what confuses me again.

2) What should I put in the last 3rd blank since I did not file for 2009?

Thank you in advance :)

If the question asks for 3 most recent years being 2009...2010...2011 (2008 is irrelevant) and if you didn't file there is no confusion. You will have to provide W2s and/or tax transcripts for those years. Second part of question is 0. It is rather evident that you won't have a tax transcript for 2009 and 2011. How are you planning on meeting the poverty level?

My first instinct was to not check the box. However I've read twice by other VJers to put the check in the box along with a letter explaining why I didn't file my taxes for 2009, and that is why I was confused :blink: and had to ask this question once again :blush:

I will submit:

- a photocopy of my 2011 tax return

- 2010 tax transcript

- 2009 explanation letter why I didn't file due to unemployment

QUESTION #3

So in that case, I'm assuming I should not put a check in the (Optional) box, where it says "I have attached photocopies or transcripts of my Federal tax returns fo rmy second and third most recent tax years." I'm just afraid that by not putting a check mark in those boxes, that the NVC might assume I missed the question.

Though I did surpass well over the poverty line in 2011, my current estimated income for 2012 will not qualify me over the poverty line, due to a temporary slow workload beginning. I will surpass the poverty line in 2012. Still I will get a joint sponsor.

Thank you both for your replies.

Check the box, enter income amounts, and request transcripts for all. Write cover letter explaining what forms you included. Yes a joint sponsor looks necessary.

I apologize, but could you clarify which box(es) I need to put a check in?
