My fiance called tonight to say she is hearing from others in her Philippines K1 discussion group that tax returns are now required, rather than IRS tax transcripts. Anyone else hearing this or can confirm? Our embassy interview is just 2 weeks away.

It is for spousal but not k1

 

However, Transcripts are easy to get and in 10 minutes you have them.  Email to your fiancee and she can print.   Embassy requires nothing original from the petitionner 

 

Does her discussion group also say that 80% of applicants don't even get asked for financial documents?  Because that is a fact

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

It is required now for the CR1 interview but not the K1. This is one of those documents where you don't need it but it would be nice to have just in case.

Remember going through the K-1 process in 2015 and my late wife was never asked for the tax returns. But going through the CR-1 with my wife it was a sticking point to have the transcripts.Even if I provided 3 years tax returns, they only accepted the last years tax returns and only the transcripts of my sponsor. 


Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.
Hebrews 11:6 - And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

Difference between the two Visa types.  

 

Spousal Visa requires the affidavit from every applicant

For the K-1 the embassy wants the most recent tax return and W2  ( and not 3 years of returns), along with the I-134  (of course)

Since 2014 the embassy has been very sporadic with asking for support evidence with the K-1 .. which seems logical being the I-134 isn't binding and thus not worth the ink used to print it out.  And the embassy can't asked for the I-864 at that point as the K-1 is a non-immigrant visa .. status can't change until in the USA.

 

As for immigrant visas, I-130 petitions (not just spousal visas), transcripts are required by NVC and the embassy.   And they only ask for the most recent tax return/transcript.
