Couple of questions.On form I-864 I am required to show a minimum of 19,388 for a family of 2.Would one be required to show this amount for the 2012 tax year only?

Income for most recent tax year, 2012 is $23,234

2011- $16,090

2010- $18,587

income for next year's tax returns, for 2013 should be about the same as 2012.

So if I average the 3 most recent tax years, 2012,2011,and 2010, it comes to about 19.088 per year,$300 less than the minimum needed.

Is the amount for 2012 all they care about?

Can I go with this income,or should I list my other assets?(I would like to just qualify on my income alone if possible)

If they decide that the income alone isn't enough, will Immigration RFE you to give you a chance to show other assets, or will they just deny your application right away?

usually with the last tax and current income it'll be enough.

sometimes the IO can request a co sponsor or assets if he or she feels that it isn't enough

They don't take an average of the years combined, they are looking for CURRENT income. Along with your tax returns send copies of your most recent pay stubs from the last month and a letter from your employer stating your current income.
