2018 tax needed for consulate interview?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I had my final document approved after appealing via a Senator. They were asking for 2018 tax returns, and my sponsor has his own accountancy firm, so he filled extensions for his wife (my in-laws). The NVC said they still wanted to see the 2018 tax return, but we pointed them towards the letter from his firm (uploaded in August) that states extensions have been filed.

 

So they approved that letter...and then said they want proof of employment from my sponsor, his wife and my wife.

 

Our lawyer thinks there is a chance that even if we get approval that when we have our consulate interview that they will reject me because I have not presented the 2018 taxes. You can not being new documents to the consulate interview too.

 

Has anyone else heard of people being rejected at interview stage for this reason? 

 

Any insight would be much appreciated

I guess it depends on when your sponsor will actually be filing their taxes for 2018.  If these are filed prior to the interview, I believe you can add them to the information you provide.  If the extension is still pending at the time of the interview, then I guess all you have is the letter showing the extension has been filed.

 

Good Luck!

I think the attorney is correct.  Consulates sometimes issue 221g for missing tax returns/transcripts.  Your sponsor should complete filing by Oct 15th......you can just take the tax forms to the interview.

Thanks for answering. He will file most likely the day before they are due, as he has clients returns to do first. We do not have an interview date as this is supposed to be the final 'hoop to jump'. 

 

We just do not want to have to wait a further 6+ weeks for them to review our documents ( our 4th time )

We just do not want to have to wait 6+ weeks after submitting for our documents to be reviewed....again.

 

We were told by out lawyer that they would not accept anything new at the consulate interview..? In other words, anything that was not submitted and approved by the NVC

The consulate is the approval authority for visas.  If your interview is scheduled, I would ask the accountant to email you a copy of his returns.  Worse case scenario is that the consulate will refuse the visa until the documents are submitted to them.

 

By the way, the attorney is incorrect.  Many times, applicants are instructed to bring "new" documents to the interview which have not been seen by NVC.

Thank you! You have made me feel slightly less panicked.

 

Yes the lawyer has been incorrect about just about everything through our journey. And I thought that was the case with 'new documents'.

 

Thank you again!

No, we are still going through the submitting process. 

 

Everything is marked as approved or accepted. But they now want proof of current employment from my sponsors (in-laws) and my wife. All of which were in the I-864/a forms.

 

So they are really dragging us through the mud now :(

I see. .I know the feeling. Our case was at NVC for 23 weeks due to, imo, our attorney's failure send some documents....that was back before electronic submission was common...in 2016....Hope you get through this process soon.
