Late Filing of Federal Tax Returns for I-864?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't think I filed for the past two tax years, because my income wasn't high enough either year.

Nonetheless, the I-864 form has this requirement:

I have filed a Federal tax return for each of the three
most recent tax years. I have attached the required
photocopy or transcript of my Federal tax return for
only the most recent tax year.

I am the petitioner. The co-sponsor is my father, who definitely fulfills the income requirements and tax return requirements of the I-864 form.

However, the I-864 in my case is a little bit more difficult. Is there any way I can file at this point? Is there a way to file via the internet? What do I show as proof?

I just don't even know where to begin. I had a couple employers in 2013, but I have no idea how much I made in total from either of those employers. I am currently living abroad, so it's not very easy for me to figure this out. My parents used to pay an accountant to file our taxes, but it seems they haven't paid for the guy to file my taxes in the last couple years.

Well if your income wasn't high enough for you to be required to file, then all you need is a written statement stating such to explain why there are no attached returns.

I don't know where you are currently located, but if you want peace of mind -- contact a US CPA located in your country. They could provide a lot of insight. I had an excellent CPA in Germany who was very knowledgeable and could give me specific legal advice on my situation. Everybody's situation is different, so it's not a bad route to go :)

Good luck!
