I am filling out the affadavit of support form I-864 EZ. When asked about total income for the year, i am confused about what amount to put. On my W2 form for 2011, Box 1 under Wages, and tips it says $31,000. But in Box 16, it says State, wages, tips, etc $34,000. I live in NJ. I don't know what income to put.

Thank you.

Thank you. So, why is the state box higher?

Probably because you had retirement or healthcare contributions taken out of your paychecks. The income is exempt under federal laws but not under state laws from income taxes. That's usually why a person's income for federal purposes is lower than than his/her income for state purposes. The lower amount subject to federal income tax reflects the exempted income from federal taxes.

Thank you. I do have healthcare taken out of my check.

Thanks for all your replies.
