Hello everyone, our interview date got moved up to next week and we are scrambling to get things together and we want to know if tax transcripts and W-2s need to be originals or will they accept them scanned or printed? 

 

thanks for all your help!

Transcripts are never original as they are printed from a website,

back in 2009 and 2010 they even date stamped them and were signed by IRS personal

The transcripts we have received in our immigration journey since 2012-2013 were  online requested and then we received the transcripts in the mail. However, now the IRS website indicates the online access, and then printing, or online ordering for mail delivery are viable options. Now the online access and printing option is slick,  with IRS letterhead logo on the printout.

 

Here is a USCIS link with their take on the original or copy of documents question:

DOS may have other requirements, check with the interviewing embassy/consulate for details.

 

YMMV.

Hello there @huttohorn

 

How is the process for you going in Ecuador? How long did it take you to receive a Case Completed status after scanning your documents into CEAC? I've just recently submitted everything and waiting on a reply. How long did you wait for the interview after Case Complete? 

 

I believe if you bring the w2's they would need to be originals. Tax transcripts can be printed.

That would be difficult as a majority of W2s are electronically distributed nowadays,
