5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

A quick question once again and I appreciate everyones help. I would like to know first the difference between Tax Transcript and Tax Return?

Secondly my cousin is my joint sponsor since my spouse does not work. He has sent me ONLY TAX RETURN for 2010, 2011 and 2012 and he is SELF EMPLOYED. what is exactly required by NVC? Is this sufficient or we need to provide some other documentation?

Thanks in advance

Tax Return

Your tax return is the document you submit when you file your taxes. A complete tax return contains not just the summary tax form you file, but also all of the supporting schedules and forms. For example, if you file a Form 1040, your tax return may possibly include not just the two-page 1040, but also a Schedule A for itemized deductions, or a Schedule D for capital gains and losses.

Tax Return Transcript

A tax return transcript is one of the two types of tax transcripts you can get from the IRS. After you file your tax return, IRS computers scan the information into a format that strips down your return into just the summary numbers on your return. For example, if you file a Schedule A with your return, you must list every specific deduction you are taking for the year. While all of this individual information will appear on your tax return, the tax return transcript will only reflect a line showing your total itemized deductions. Since the tax return transcript uses IRS terminology and lists hard data in a format very different from a tax return, it can be more difficult for taxpayers to understand than a traditional tax return.

2010, 2011 an 2012 tax return...you will need those. make sure to ask a copy of his passport or greencard so that the USCIS know his status here in the US.

goodluck
