Copies of documents submitted are exact photocopies and we understand that we may be required to submit original documents to an Immigration or Consular officer at a later date, if required.

Just send the tax transcripts. And yes, both of you should sign the letter - it is a joint petition.

For 100% comfort, include all bank statements. Based on your list, I think you would actually be OK with quarterly bank statements.

You never know with USCIS. But you have pretty awesome details!

It makes sense that both spouses sign the cover letter in a joint petition (we both signed as well) but it's not a requirement. In fact a cover letter is not required. However both spouses must sign the I-751 form if applying jointly.
