AOS - Joint Sponsor

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My dad is my only joint sponsor. I noticed something on his IRS Tax transcripts and now am kind of worried.

My dad filed on his taxes, 'Married filed Jointly', although my mom does not work, does not receive any income for any source what so ever. My mom has not worked for more than 5 years, as she's been ill and now her illnesses have become worse just recently.

It's clear that the income is only from my dad. But I just worried that those words, 'Married filing Jointly' would cause unnecessary confusion. Am I right to be concerned... or is there nothing to truly worry about? :unsure:

Any advice would be helpful.

Married filing jointly is perfectly fine. Despite your mom not working, your parents are entitled to a larger standard deduction. I'm sure this might put your dad in a lower tax bracket (meaning he'll keep more of the money he's earned), and that's really a positive thing for them.

Thanks.
