what are the actual requirements in regards to this? I know about the 125% poverty level but can anyone send me a link to what the actual rules or law is?

I have read last years income must meet that level. but then why do they require the last 3 years? Must all years be above that level?

They care the most about current income. You have to disclose how much you made for the prior 3 years but you are only required to provide the most recent tax return.

 

From the instructions:

Item Numbers 23.a. - 25. Federal Income Tax Return Information. You must provide either an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) transcript or a photocopy from your own records of your Federal individual income tax return for the most recent tax year. If you believe additional returns may help you to establish your ability to maintain sufficient income, you may submit transcripts or photocopies of your Federal individual income tax returns for the three most recent years.

 

If your current job provides steady/consistent income that is well above 125% of the poverty line, it is unlikely that making less in previous years will matter. However, if your current job is very new and/or your income is barely scraping above the 125% requirement, the previous years can have more of an impact (whether good or bad).

 

Basically it is at the discretion of the officer reviewing your Affidavit of Support. They will look at the totality of the circumstances, which can include all three years.
