Submitted explanation for not filing taxes but NVC asking for tax transcript

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I submitted all the AOS and supporting docs and Civil Docs to CEAC a couple of weeks ago and they have sent this message:

 

"Additional support documentation is required. Please upload and submit XXX's 2017 IRS transcript. A transcript can be obtained on the IRS's website: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. If a tax transcript was not required to be filed, submit an explanation for not filing."

 

In CEAC where it asks for the Tax Transcript - I put a note saying to refer to the "Explanation for not filing taxes" document type which has an uploaded signed statement explaining why taxes were not filed.

 

This document type has been accepted so I'm not sure why it's still asking for the 2017 transcript.

 

Can someone please advise what I should do in this case? I am not sure if I should re-submit the "Explanation for not filing taxes" document again or??

 

I'm just feeling a bit deflated because I spent soo much time making sure I got this right.

 

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Did you call NVC? I would start with that if I were you. I don't have experience with CR-1/IR-1 (I'm a K1er) so I can't advise you based on personal experience. I'm pretty sure it happens sometimes that they sent out REF's by accident, I would just call them to figure out what to do before you re-submit the explanation.

I had also uploaded my joint sponsors tax returns from 2015, 2016, 2017 and all the 1099s and these have been accepted. 

I don’t know what to do :(

 

I have a very similar situation. If you happen to find the answer could you post it on here please.

 

If it has been sent to the embassy then NVC just says "we did our job now you need to deal with the embassy."

Accepted only means that the document was uploaded properly, it doesn't mean that they can't ask for tax transcripts after they reviewed the explanation.  If they are asking for tax transcripts, then file tax returns with the IRS for the last three years and submit them as requested, or wait until they have been processed by the IRS and then get the transcripts from the IRS website.  Give them what they asked for.  Maybe they have a reason to suspect that you should have filed.

I called NVC and they advised that I need to upload the statement for not filing document as the “federal income tax return or transcript” document type or label. 

 

Even though I had uploaded this already with the “explanation for not filing taxes” document type or label, it needed to be labeled as the tax return or transcript (even though it’s not actually the tax return or transcript). 

 

I asked them why and they said it needed to be that label so it can be sent to the embassy. 

I asked why this wasn’t made more clear so I could have done this properly the first time but all they said was that the system isn’t that advanced yet. 

 

So I am a bit annoyed that it’s now going to take another 2-3 weeks for them to review this. But I hope it helps anyone in the future.
