Affidavit of Support Supporting Documents

Hi all

Just a quick question before sending the AOS package.

I have tax returns from 2006 and 2005 but not 2004. And i have W2 forms from 2006, 2005 and 2004. So I am missing just the 3rd years tax return.

Do you think this is enough evidence, with an explanation behind the misplaced tax return.

Has anyone had any trouble with not supplying enough Supporting Evidence with the Affidavit?

Thanks

How do you have 2006 tax returns already? You may have to give them an explanation as to why you don't have the tax return you're needing. Good luck :)

I had heard that they only need 1 year's return now. but if you have the W2s - why can't you recreate your return from 2003? All the copies I gave them were unsigned (so that is not an issue.) My copies were unsigned because I have bene filing electronically for many years. Good Luck

I had the same story.

My husband didn't file in 2003.

He was a student.

I called the IRS and they faxed a statement that

his 2003 return isn't on file, that basically he didn't file.

I have heard they like seeing the IRS letterheads explaining stuff.

I have done that eventhough we have a sponsor (he had all the returns).

Hope that helps,

A

USCIS has now posted updated instructions re: the affidavit of support. Only one year of tax returns is required -- the most recent tax year.

http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/i-864.htm

"All sponsors must submit the following documentation with their I-864:

* Proof of current employment or self employment

* A photocopy or an Internal Revenue Service-issued transcript of a photocopy or an Internal Revenue Service-issued transcript of your complete Federal income tax return for your most recent tax year, or an explanation if it is not submitted. Your W-2s and/or 1099 forms may also be required, see the I-864 instructions for details."


"When all else fails, read the instructions."

Read the link that hcj posted. You will see it says exactly what hcj has included in the post, to quote:

"All sponsors must submit the following documentation with their I-864:

* Proof of current employment or self employment

]* A photocopy or an Internal Revenue Service-issued transcript of a photocopy or an Internal Revenue Service-issued transcript of your complete Federal income tax return for your most recent tax year, or an explanation if it is not submitted. Your W-2s and/or 1099 forms may also be required, see the I-864 instructions for details."

Reading further down it says....

You may also, at your option, submit a photocopy or an Internal Revenue Service-issued transcript of your complete Federal income tax returns for your second and third most recent tax years if you believe these additional tax returns may help you establish the ability to maintain your household income at the governing threshold set forth in Form I-864P, Poverty Guidelines.

And if you need to get a copy because you don't have it on hand for whatever reason, the IRS hotline is very useful... or your local IRS office. We had some issues with filing with my husband living outside the US (and Canada has a reciprocal tax treaty with the US, where if you make under a certain amount and pay income tax in Canada, you don't pay anything in the US) and the IRS had those tax return copies whipped out within 5-10 minutes.
