Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Pakistan

My husband is the joint sponsor to my sisters petition filed by my mom. My mom does t work and has no source of income.  However he also sponsored his parents in 2015 who currently live with us and are permanent resident. For the current household size, will they be counted under (part 5 - line 5) other dependents (they don’t have an income and are dependent on our Tax returns) or (part 5- line 6) other persons on form I 864 who are now permanent residents? 
He makes enough to be 125% above the poverty line with all the household members and sponsoring family but just wanted to make sure if we count them once or twice? If once, then which category? Thanks everyone.

My thought is to include them in line 6.  They will also show up on the tax transcript so I would note that in the additional information at the end of the form. Line 5 is typically for children (as dependants), but parents can be claimed.  You could show it the other way around too.  It is hard to tell what the intent of the form is for that situation.


You are correct - Do not count them twice.
