Tax return I134

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! Please does anyone know if we need a co sponsor (or what else we should do), if my fiance does not have any tax return yet? Until last February he was student. We do not have problem with anything else, but we just do not have any tax return. Can anyone help?

Is the USC able to provide current pay stubs reflecting adequate income and a letter from employer stating they are full time/permanent employee and their current salary/wage/hourly rate? If they can meet the income requirements you may be able to get away with not showing tax returns.... but perhaps having a co-sponsor lined up would be best option to avoid any issues come the interview.

Thank You Ben and Zian. Yeah we do not have problem with the letter, the salary (it is actually much higher than the minimum) and all of that. So I guess we should be okay. That is the thing that it is much more work/documents and time to have another co sponsor.

By no means am I stating this as fact just simply stating what someone else had written on a previous post

Apparently the Philippines do not even ask for proof of financial support.

My person opinion would be, Supply a letter from employer, Pay stubs and the proof of bank deposits. Maybe even a letter from the USC to says up until whatever date I was not required to file taxes due to earning below the threshold or not earning at all. Whatever the situation was. Maybe they will appreciate that. Some places also do not accept a co-sponsor so be sure that they accept one in the Philippines

Dear Zoe, thanks for Your answer. I am not for Philippines-going to apply in Europe. So actually You message totally same thing we decided to do. We will message an embassy if they can help us, but I guess we will prepare a statement from USC that because he was student there was no need of paying taxes so far. Also gonna ask his university for official letter. Thanks everyone for help!!! Have a great Christmas time :)

I worried about this too at one point but I think the letter from the uni is an excellent idea. I think someone mentioned before to have a letter from the uni saying what dates they attended but I could be wrong. This is probably extremely common but just make sure you know the process when it comes to the AOS as this is stricter I believe when it comes to the tax return. I am not sure how that works with not having any tax returns to provide.

Merry Christmas to you too Richard!
