I have tax documents for my joint sponsor and I have been unable to compress them. I have used several different programs.  Am I able to separate the tax documents and submit them or do they have to be submitted all in the same document?

It is best joining all tax documents into one then upload it.

If you are comfortable compressing the files online, try these sites

 

https://smallpdf.com/compress-pdf

If you are not, google and download some application like "pdfedit995". We used this one but I have used the online sites for other tasks

I have the same issue. If I compress below 2MB the quality of the file is bad. I was wondering if we need to upload the whole tax return or just certain documents from it: 1040/1099, certain schedules as that would make a huge difference in file size. Tax return that I have contains certain spreadsheets, comparing tax returns from prior years etc. Not sure if all this is needed...

Yes exactly! I was going through the documents. One was 94 pages long and I was trying to weed out certain pages that weren’t necessary and that helped a lot but still gcouldnt get it to 2mb. Also not sure if that will cause issues because I deleted pages from the document and not provided the untouched original. 😕

I used Adobe official website. It allows to compress a few times for free per day:

I tried that one and wasn't able to compress it to 2mb.

For a 94-page document, even the best compression software will have a hard time getting the file under 2 mb if all of the pages are scanned. If, on the other hand, you were able to get access to digital versions of most of the pages and inserted scans only for the pages where signatures appear, the file size will be smaller. For example, most major tax software will generate a (relatively small) pdf of the return, and most W-2s, 1099s, etc. are also available digitally these days as well. Not sure if this would be feasible to obtain from the joint sponsor in this situation, though.

 

I can’t comment on whether files can be split up as I haven’t looked into that myself.
