Three Years of Tax Returns

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

My time to apply for citizenship has arrived! I haven't received my 10 years green card yet, but I hope to get updates soon.

 

I started to fill out the online citizenship application and its says there that USCIS recommends to upload last three years of tax returns. However, my wife and I didn't have any income on 2017 (I didn't work and she was a full time student), which means that I have tax returns only for 2016 and 2018. My question is if it will be better to wait until I have the 2019 tax return or submit the application without the 2019 tax return and bring it at the day of the interview?

 

Thank you,

You can always go back and refile the 2017 taxes even with zero income. I mention this all the time on here that just because you don't make enough to file taxes that year, you are still able to file even if you made no money. There are 2 reasons I recommend this. 1- you will then have a tax transcript to print and use with any citizenship process, and 2- even though you didn't have any income, depending on things like you said ( School) there are programs that allow you to get a refund even if you don't make any money that year, and you could be missing out on money. Now I don't guarantee everyone is owed money, but if you don't file, you don't know, and the IRS isn't going to look to hard for you to file if they owe you money. Just an FYI, and I would go ahead and get the process started, you can always bring your 2019 taxes to the interview or I believe you can log back in and upload them later in the process I think after you file them ( Someone else would have to confirm that, as I am not sure if it is a one time filing, or if you can update your file later before the interview), But I would want to start the clock as soon as possible to Citizenship.
