A reminder for those applying in December 2015, January 2016, February 2016... February has 29 days in 2016... If you are applying 90 days early, this will affect the day that you become eligible to file.

The best thing to do is to use the official early filing calculator, which takes this into account.

Goodluck to all the N-400 hopefuls!!

Please apart from the requirements in the N-400 guide: http://www.uscis.gov/n-400 , is there any additional documents and information that y'all think can be added to the package that should be sent (3 year rule)? such as Tax transcripts, photo's, lease e.t.c? hoping to file in MAY so its best to start gathering all the info and docs.

The tax transcripts (and other required documents) are listed on the document checklist (on the link you shared). The n400 instructions also ask you to send two photos.

http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/article/attachments.pdf

Read the checklist, the n400, instructions, and the m-476 naturalization guide.

Hey, good luck everyone!! Feeling great about joining you all on this final step. I'm applying under 5 year rule. Could someone please add me to the list?

Sent package 01/05/16 to Texas lockbox.

USPS shows it was dropped off this morning at 11:15. I filed with a I-912 fee waiver. Will let you all know how that works out. Hoping it doesn't slow down my process and gets approved. At least I can pay with a credit card now if it comes to that :/
