I am anticipating some problems here.

My wife (the US citizen) has been living in France with me since 2012. She only left recently to find a job in the US so we can move together. We have sent i-130 and received NOA2. Since I a preparing the AOS and IV packages, I see a potential problem.

She has not filed a tax report as of yet. She might have one from before 2012 when she was a student but I am not even sure this is the case (she did work at the same time). Will the pay stubs, letter from employer and a cover letter explaining why she has no tax information suffice?? (I am already deading the answer).

Thank yu for your detailed answers, I would love to hear from people who faced the same situation too.

If she wasn't required to file, then she can submit a letter indicating why she wasn't required to do so. If she was required and just didn't (which sounds like the case), she needs to file back taxes.
