Hello VJ!!! Hope some of you can help us here....

I have ran into a problem....

Im trying to get my i-134 complete for my fiance to set an appointment for his interview in Manila embassy but I can't complete it due to the fact that I have no tax records from the IRS due to the fact that I was living in the Philippines from 2005-2014. I arrived in California last April and got a job last July. The thing is, is that I havent been here long enough to have taxes filed. Do we have to find a co-sponsor or is there a way around it? Although I do make good money and its way over the poverty line.

Thanks and hope to get an answer soon.

What matters is your current income. If your current income is above the 125% of the poverty guidelines (2014) then you do NOT need a co-sponsor. Make sure you include other evidence too: last 6-12 paychecks/paystubs, employment letter, bank statement, etc. and proof that you worked and lived in the Philippines.

As supporting evidence for the Form I-134 you only need to show past year's W2 & Form 1040 OR IRS tax Return Transcript, not past 3 years.

Showing the past 3 years tax papers would be needed only if you filed for spousal visa (CR-1).

You need to have verifiable income showing you meet the 125% requirement of the I-864P to get the K-1 visa approved. Using a co-sponsor with the K-1 is difficult at best. Too bad you didn't get married while living in the Phils, no issue with a co-sponsor with the IR/CR-1.

Best option is to wait on the interview until you have filed your tax return for 2014 (end of January at the earliest), even if it is for only half a year. Then. You for sure will need an employment letter stating gross yearly income, plus it would be good to include copies of pay stubs.

Embassy instructions letter only asks for your most recent tax return & W2, not 3 years.
