Affidavit of Support Question - Green card interview

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear gurus,

I am a US citizen petitioning for the green card for my wife. We have an interview date set already. I have been a graduate student overseas for the last 5 years and just got my first "employment" at the start of 2015 overseas. I have not filed tax returns for the last 5 years because my income (a scholarship stipend, <$30,000/yr, no W2s or anything issued by university) is too low when foreign-earned income exclusion is considered (comes out to a "total income = 0 $" on the 1040 line 22). However, I have assets (bank account statement) over 5x the poverty minimum for a household of 3, like mine. I also have a job offer in the USA with good salary that I signed/accepted. Should that be sufficient? Or should I consider filing "late tax returns" even though I owed nothing and take the slips with me? Thanks!
