Only W2s/1040 and Bank Balance?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All. 

 

Anyone here applied for Ir1/CR1 from Myanmar (Burma).

 

If not - would someone else have an answer for the below - 

 

The embassy website for Myanmar asks for W2s/1040 with the i864,  for the petitioner and I am assuming any joint sponsor. It does NOT mention - that IRS tax transcripts are preferred or acceptable too.

So should we just provide only what is requested or add the transcripts nevertheless?

 

In addition they also ask for - Bank Balance - would that be for both petitioner and joint sponsor?

 

Thanks all, have a good Sunday.

If you can, throw the transcripts in there. It doesn't hurt. Technically, one or the other is enough.

Give them both.

Just make sure you fully understand the context of any instructions, then take them literally within that context.  Do the instructions actually say, W2 and 1040i, or do they say something more like a complete copy of the "tax return"?  A complete copy of a tax return would include EVERYTHING,  that would be filed if filing by mail, so yes W2 and/or 1099 forms, but also ALL schedules, not just the 1040.  If there is no reference to "OR" a Tax Return Transcript, then follow the instructions precisely, and add the transcript or transcripts anyway.

Hi USS_Voyager and pushbrk,

 

Thanks for the replies. I will provide do the W2 and 1040 and give the tax transcripts as well. 

 

Is it common for embassies to ask for Bank Balance as well?

 

Below is the exact grab from the website

I would suggest you take the tax transcript as well. I received a 221g for not having a tax transcript 2 weeks ago. It was not required to take it prior to the interview, but they still wanted to see it. After I sent them the tax transcript I was approved. If you can avoid this hassle I would recommend so. ;) The consulate did not ask me for a bank balance

Yeah I received a 221g for not having a tax transcript just over 2 weeks ago as well.  Same scenario as above, but we couldn't get the Manila Embassy the transcript until the 7th.  Still in AP.

As for the bank balance, and employment letter, just send EXACTLY what they ask for...

Good point, but I'd recommend requesting tax transcripts as well.  They're far stronger proof than the docs that you file yourself, and they're likely needed at some point in this process.
