I should be booking my interview appointment soon but I am a little confused over the tax returns I need to bring because our situation is slightly different.

 

My fiancee has lived with me in Ireland for the last two years. For the first year she was in college and then she started working here in the second year (last year).

 

As a US citizen working abroad she is required to declare her foreign earned income to the IRS. She won't actually have to pay tax as she doesn't earn enough. We have not done this yet but are getting the forms together.

 

Due to the fact that she doesn't have a job in the US, I will need a co-sponsor (her mom). So I will need to bring an I134 from my fiancee and an I134 from her mom.

I will need her moms most recent tax return but my question is what do I bring from my fiancee? Do I wait till we send in all this paperwork for foreign earned income (June is the time limit to do it) and use her 2018 return? Or do I just get her last tax return from when she lived in the US which would be about 2 years old?

 

Thanks

I134 from both with recent evidence.   Two year old evidence is not recent 


YMMV

I worked overseas and filed form 2555 EZ to exclude my foreign income. I did not use any other sponsor for my wifes K-1, just my own evidence. I had transcripts from the IRS as well. They showed Wages and below in "Other Income" a negative adjustment of all of those wages as they were not taxable. 

 

 

Just pointing out the filing of the taxes and getting transcript was not problematic, I think I had the transcripts mailed at first as I could not get online access right away.
