I-864: Relevance of tax transcripts

Hello!

I am new to this website and my (American) husband and I (originally from Germany) just got married two weeks ago. We are now just getting started on the immigration process for me here in the US. We are currently filling out all forms and I have a question regarding the relevance of the tax transcripts of the last three years for form I-864. My husband is currently (in 2012) making enough money to sponsor me according to the income guidelines. However, he has not filed taxes within the US as he was living/working abroad in 2010/2011 (where we met :-)....) and he also went to college in 2009, 2010 and partially in 2011. He did not work in the US in either of those years and he therefore cannot get tax transcripts from the IRS. We are not sure which effect this will have on his ability to sponsor me. As stated before, however, he is earning enough money now and will be.

Therefore I am wondering if anyone knows more about the relevance of those transcripts in connection to evaluating his ability to sponsor me alone and if we should possibly consider a co-sponsor (or joint sponsor)?

Thanks a lot in advance:-)

If he earned enough working abroad, he still needed to file taxes. He needs to check with an accountant or on the IRS site for the publications that list who is required to file. If he needed to file and did not, he needs to file now. You only need to provide the most recent tax transcript, but need to list your income from the last 3 years on the I-864 form. If he was a student and did not earn enough to be required to file, then he needs to include a statement as to why he was not legally required to file taxes those years. To prove his current income, he should provide a letter from his employer and most recent pay stub(s). See the I-864 instructions for more details.
