I-864 Tax Transcripts: Is one year ever a better choice than 3?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Filling out our AOS paperwork today and I have lots of questions about this I-864 form. I will be sponsoring my husband alone (no co-sponsor) and I am wondering what I should do in regards to tax transcripts. I have transcripts and full returns for the past four years, but I am unsure of what to send in. My income for 2014 is well beyond the requirement. My income for 2013 is also beyond the requirement (although my income for 2014 is nearly 3x as much) and my income for 2012 is 0 because of foreign earnd income.

Is it better for me to just send in 2014 since I have earned the most this year? Or is it better to send in all 3 years even though my earnings are signficantly less? I don't know if my application will be stronger with just my income for last year We really don't want a RFE (not that anyone ever does!) and I am unsure of what to send in.

Thanks so much!

Karenbel is correct, you need to list income for the past three years. With your 2012 situation, you may want to include transcripts/copies for all three years, but in our case, I only sent the 2013 copy when we submitted the AOS, and gave them a copy of my 2014 at the interview since it was completed by that time.

Good Luck!
