So,  you need $29420 at the K1  level

later for AOS you will need 125%  $36775

you can submit the employee letter but depending on the country of interview,   this may or may not be accepted and they could ask for cosponsor

much may depend on when you started the new raise

you will still have to submit the most recent year of tax information / IRS transcripts are the best way and free to get if you walk into any IRS office with ID and SS card

2017 if interview before April 15th

2018 if after that date

 

it is always best to do a timeline here on your profile and let the VJ community know what country and embassy you are dealing with

I believe that current income is what counts, am I wrong??  If in 2017 you made $27000 but currently you are making what you need to qualify, doesn't that qualify you? Isn't current income THE determining factor?

IRS offices are not taking walk-ins without an appointment. https://www.irs.gov/help/contact-your-local-irs-office  You have to make an appointment via a phone call to walk in now. I ordered mine online and had them mailed to me. I received them in 7 days. There is supposed to be a way that you can verify your identity online and have access to the transcripts immediately. I could not get it to work and others here have also reported problems with that method.

Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.

could not find it for I 134 but I 864 says this:

 

You may include evidence supporting your claim about your expected income for the current year if you believe that submitting this evidence will help you establish ability to maintain sufficient income. You are not required to submit this evidence, however, unless specifically instructed to do so by a U.S. Government official. For example, you may include a recent letter from your employer, showing your employer’s address and telephone number, and indicating your annual salary. You may also provide pay stubs showing your income for the previous six months. If your claimed income includes alimony, child support, dividend or interest income, or income from any other source, you may also include evidence of that income.

 

at first i put my "this year's income" for current  as mine  is set in concrete and NVC  made me do it over and put the last year tax return as the current

the old instructions use to actually say current year is the last year of filing
