Amended tax return question

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! We just found out that my husband's (the petitioner) tax preparer filed his 2017 taxes jointly. However, for some reason, didn't include my income at all. I've been working in my home country in 2017. As far as I understand, if the taxes are filed jointly, it means that IRS will treat me (the beneficiary) as a US resident and we're required to declare world-wide income of both of us. Now we're planning to amend taxes to avoid any issues with IRS later.

We're ready to upload the financial documents to NVC portal but a bit confused - do you think we can upload tax transcript 2017 that we have right now and bring the updated tax transcript/amended tax return file to interview or it would be better to wait when we file tax amendment and upload amended tax return file? We really don't want to waste time on waiting but still are afraid to do something wrong. It would be great if you could share your experience/thoughts.
