Tax Returns

Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding tax returns and hoping this is the right forum to post it in, as I believe every country does it a bit differently. I started working in late 2010 which made my income only about ~$3000, to which I didn't file a tax return as it wasn't required. Last year I didn't work for 2 months as I was in the UK, and moved jobs around quite a bit and my total income unfortunately was around $10,000. My tax return was barely $400 for 2011. Now obviously this is a concern because it nowhere near shows a good stable income. I'm wondering if the UK embassy is very hard on tax returns and actually requires them, even if I have a letter from my current employer stating my income and eventual raises? I'm at the $21000 at the moment, by July it'll be $24600. The interview will be coming up soon and I do not have a hard copy of my taxes this year, as I had thought my employer letter would be sufficient, but I'd definitely appreciate a second opinion. A co-sponsor is also not a option regardless of any of these circumstances.

Oh, another quick question too:

How soon is everyone getting interviews after the medical? My fiance just went for his and they had said everyone was getting their interview within 2 weeks, and I wanted to see if anyone has found that accurate or not.

Thank you for your time.

They want to see them to make sure you're a good citizen and filing you tax returns every year.

They might want an explanation why you haven't filed 2010 (not required to file because of low income) but I'm sure will judge your ability to support your fiancee based on your current employer's statements, not previous years tax filings.

Thanks for your response!

Good to know. I'll type out a explanation for the 2010. Since 2011 taxes have already passed, should I try to get a hard copy of it and send it to my fiance? My hopes were that it would be redundant anyway due to the letter.

Correct

London does not require a tax return with the I-134. I would suggest some copies of your recent pay stubs to go along with your employer letter so you have two proofs.

Later when he files for AOS in the US, you will inform USCIS on the I-864 of income from 2009, 2010, and 2011 tax returns. You will write a statement if you didn't file. You will be required to submit at least the 2011 tax return or transcript.

He might get a letter in 2-3 weeks informing him of an appointment if his other documents have been submitted.

They want to see them to make sure you're a good citizen and filing you tax returns every year.

This may be true at other consulates, but not London.
