Request of Initial evidence (RFE) I-485

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I received an RFE couple of days ago staying that:

 

"The petitioner/sponsor on firm I-864, Affidavit of support, must submit a complete Federal income tax return submitted to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the most recent tax year.

 

The petitioner/sponsor's household member on Form I-864A must submit a complete Federal income tax return submitted to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the most recent tax year"

 

Recently I found out that my wife (which is the American citizen) only sent her W2s for her and our co-sponsor. 

 

I've done some research and figured then that that was not enough. 

 

Would complete tax transcript from the recent year suffice? I've seen people also sending 1040 as well along with the trancripts. Should we get that form as well? She's also getting employment letters from both jobs she currently has although getting pay stubs would be difficult since she's fairly new to both jobs. 

 

We're getting the same information from our co-sponsor too.

 

What do you guys think? We want to gather the exact information they're asking and we're a bit confused, that's why I'm coming to you for advice. Thank you sooo much in advance!

She is supposed to send either:

1) Tax transcripts

or

2) 1040 + all W-2s/1099s/other schedules

 

Sending just the W-2s was insufficient.

Thank you so much for your response. My wife is going to download the transcripts  on Monday. I understand that W2s are included in the Tax Transcript but we're sending them as well just to be sure. Should we also send the employment letters and pay stubs from recent months as well? They're not asking for them but we want to provide as much information as we can this time. Thank you in advance.
