My fiance has his interview date and we are about to do DS160..

When I sent the I:134 supporting documents I didn't send tax returns because it said on vj that if u are self employed u may only need to send those for interview. I

Do I still need to send my tax returns to him for his interview..

I sent everything else like job and other income... But should I send tax returns

You need to send the tax returns. It says on package 3 that one of the require document needed and your visa will be refused if you don't have it. Please do not make the same mistake I did. Last year I thought the same thing and I did not give my fiance my tax returns and he was denied. If you can send 2013,2014 and 2015.

where did you read that on VJ? Are you saying that self-employed ppl don't file taxes?

Then how would they know how you will be able to support your partner?

You will need several items (for the above form). Gather duplicate evidence of income and resources as appropriate:

(A) Statement from an officer of the bank/financial institution with your deposits, identifying the following: 1. date account opened; 2. total amount deposited for the past year; 3. present balance

(B) Statement(s) from your employer on business stationary showing: 1. Date and nature of employment; 2. salary paid; 3. whether position is temporary or permanent (also include copies of your last two pay stubs and your previous W-2 for the associated employer if available)

© If Self Employed: 1. Copy of last income tax return filed (or IRS transcripts); or 2. report of commercial rating concern

(D) List containing serial numbers and denominations of bonds and name of record owner(s).

I don't have w2 from employer I have now.. I wasn't working last year...or I was not self employed.. But I do have documents showing the kind of income was receiving...

Did you file taxes last year? If not, you should back file before the interview, you don't want to be placed in AP for missing documents. What sort of income did you recieve last year, did you meet the minimum income requirements, and how were you paid? You may want to do a quick search about claiming assessts. The embassy will base your ability to sponsor off of you past year's income. FYI: Ghana requires tax transcripts not tax returns. To the best of my knowledge this has not changed. If you want to be extra cautions you can bring a copy of your tax return and transcript. The CO may ask for it or look over it, so include it will your evidence for the interview. You're only required to submit the past year's tax info but you can submit 3 years to be on the safe side. You can print it from the IRS website https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

Well wishes on you journey.
