Self employed I-134, are IRS transcripts enough?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm just preparing for my interview in a week or so (London).  We've got the I-134 completed and ready to go.  My fiance (petitioner) is self employed and all I plan in taking are the tax return transcripts (downloaded from the IRS website) as proof of income.  Do I need to bring anything else or are the transcripts from 2017 and 2018 going to be sufficient on their own?

Yes. 2018 alone would be enough for London. On a tax return, the key line is TOTAL INCOME.

In 2018, we got new tax forms so it's Line 6 of the Form 1040.

Years prior showed TOTAL INCOME on Form 1040 Line 22.

Thank you!  To be clear, this isn't the 1040 (I believe that's the actual form you complete and submit), this is the transcript produced by the IRS after the 1040 has been filled and submitted, which I assume, is better than the 1040 itself.   So it looks like this, not like this.

That looks much tidier than all the transcripts I've received, but yes I know the difference. Total Income is there in the second column and should be over the threshold. I just gave the Line numbers for others who may be looking at a copy of the return.
