Submitting tax returns

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Here goes. My wife is a us citizen living here in UK with me and our daughter for 12 years. I am having a medical in 2 weeks and then the interview. Most stuff is covered, apart from my wife having not submitted her IRS tax returns for the past 3 years when she has worked. This question appears on the i864. She has her P60s for the 3 years, but she is having difficulty understanding the process. Anyone else who has had this come up?

She needs to file her delinquent returns or provide an explanation as to why she wasn't required 


YMMV

Yup, she needs to file her US taxes. Check the last page of her US passport.

The I-864 cannot be accepted from her until those are filed (even if she owes nothing), assuming she was above the minimum required to file (which is the same in the US or abroad).

If her income in the UK was more than US $12,000 a year, she needs to file late tax returns to the IRS for the last three tax years, 2016, 2017, 2018, and include them with the I-864.  If her income was below $12,000 per year, she needs to attach a letter explaining that her income was below the minimum required to file.  US citizens are obligated to file US tax returns regardless of where they live, based on their world-wide income.  If she does not have a job in the US, to prove US-based income to support the family, or sufficient assets in lieu of income, you will also need a co-sponsor.  Read the I-864 instructions very carefully and submit everything required.  Good luck!
