Submitted RFE for I-751

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently submitted my RFE on March 14, 2019 and our documents were received Monday, march 18, 2019. I checked my USCIS case status and seen that they really received it that they will work on our case again. After reading the status of our case, I decided to read some topics/forums regarding what to expect or happen after submitting RFE. I have been noticing that "TAX TRANSCRIPTS" were always mentioned on each forum. What we only submitted was the actual tax return paper from what were printed out after filing it (2016-2018 ITR forms, we already submitted 2015 before). I have been thinking and worrying about not submitting our tax transcripts eventhough we have it. Is our case gonna be in jeopardy? 😔😔😔

Not if you submitted a copy of every single tax form and schedule you filed for that tax year. This is the reason why tax transcripts are highly recommended, because they are fully complete in and of themselves.

Hypnos, we submitted a copy of 2016, 2017, and 2018 tax return. Would that be sufficient?

Jwmasca, it depends on what you are calling a "copy".  If it is just the 1040, then no, that is not enough.  You would have to submit a copy OF EVERY DOCUMENT you submitted with your return - which usually includes W-2s (if you have jobs), 1099-INTs (if you have bank interest), 1099-DIV (if you have dividend income) etc.  That's why transcripts are better.

 

If you submitted a copy of your tax returns (1040s) PLUS copies of all the accompanying documents, you will be fine.

Thank you for your comment. I checked what we submitted and its all 1040's..its 2016-2018 individual tax return (filed jointly).😔  yes we do have work but failed to submit our W2's as well 😔 We submitted bank statements with both our names on our checking and savings account, our motorcycle credit cards both our names, health insurance (dental, health, and vision), affidavits from 3 of our friends, camper/trailer both under our names, my husband's 401k showing me as his 100% beneficiary, driver's license (me and my husband), motorcycle ownership both under our names.

We don't have any house mortgage because we are living with my mother-in-law, she provided us a affidavit stating that we've been living with her since the day I got here up to present and we also submitted copy of her house mortgage. We tried to have a baby, but unfortunately I had a miscarriage. I submitted a copy of my hospital record stating about my miscarriage. I hope that'll help too although its not on the list. Lastly, some pictures from 2016 to present. Again, thank you.

It SHOULD be enough, but transcripts are better.  Anyone can fill out a 1040 and make a copy of the W-2, but that does not PROVE you submitted it to the IRS.  The tax transcript PROVES that you submitted (and WHAT you submitted) the complete tax return to the IRS.  That is why many of us on Visa Journey keep pushing people to submit transcripts.

I submitted IRS tax transcripts but not State returns. Is that going to be a problem?

No. USCIS is only interested in Federal return. Some states dont even require state returns from everyone. I know that was why my mom decided to retire to Florida- no state return was needed there.
