Tax Return Submission for I-864 at interview

3 posts in this topic

Timeline

My husband had his interview at the Guangzhou Embassy in China a few days ago. With my I-864 that I sent him, I also attached my tax return for 2013 (and a letter explaining why I had not filed in 2012 and 2011). After my husband gave the interviewer all of his documents, the interviewer asked him if he had my 2013 tax return (which was attached to the I-864). My husband didn't realize and said no, because he didn't have it in his own hands. Now we need to resubmit my 2013 tax return. The forms I submitted were my 1040 and 2555ez (foreign income exclusion, since I was living in China in 2013). The document listing what we need to submit reads:

"Submit a complete set of 2013 federal income tax returns, including W-2s, 1099s and all schedules, from the following people marked with 'X'"

Then it has an "X" next to Your petitioner (which is me).

I was working for a Taiwanese company in 2013, so I do not have a W-2 or 1099. What else do I need to submit besides my 1040 and 2555ez (which is all I submitted to the IRS, and they approved it) to make it a "complete set" of tax returns? Was this a mistake on the embassy's part, or am I missing something?

Thanks for any help!

The obvious mistake was on the part of the VO, who didn't realize that your tax return was attached.

Your "complete set of 2013 federal income tax returns, including W-2s, 1099s and all schedules," consists of the Forms 1040 and 2555EZ.

It should be exactly as you submitted it to the IRS.

You COULD submit an amended 1040 to include the Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement as a substitute for the Form W-2, but why would you bother?

Submit your tax return transcript (you can download it online - then print it and scan it so it is not copy protected) and email that to your husband to print and hand over.

Quick question: Do you currently have work in the USA or is your job continuing after your husband moves to the USA? I'm trying to find out if you need a joint sponsor or not. Foreign income by the petitioner is not counted towards the poverty guidelines unless it continues in the USA.
