Taxes for 2006, wife not living in the US declared in 1040

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am petitioning for my wife living in Nicaragua, so far we are at the second stage where she already got her NVC case #. Right now, I am filling the form I-184 to send it to NVC, but I was wondering about my 2007 taxes.

I would like to know if what I did would affect the visa for my wife. I called IRS a few months ago and I asked them if I could put my wife in form 1040, even though she was living in Nicaragua, and they told me if I was married to her since August 2006, I could do it. They even provided me with an ITIN # for her. Does she also need to sign the Authorization for Release of Federal Tax Data? Or should I send it just with my signature?

Personally I would get this sorted as soon as you can, as I have been given an ok at interview with the priviso that my wife sort he taxes out for last year(she has been living with me in Wales for the last 18months or so) because she didn't file any. I got a copy of her 1040 sent to the embassy the next day with my passport, and other documents.

I hate to be a moaner, but the woman on the counter DID say with this being sorted out it would only take five working days. THREE WEEKS later I got fed up with waiting in my home for the package to return, as in my passport and my other documents - all proving that she was living here in the UK, paying taxes, and living privately in modest accomodation.

I phoned the parcel delievry service, who told me contrary to what I understood. They said that they would phone me before making a delivery, but there wasn't anything to be delivered to me anyway. At this I phoned my wife, I get worried about large organisations losing you, as in your paperwork - which is essentially you in this case.

My Wife phoned the embassy, but as most of the people will agree they can be quite evasive. I do have an understanding of the security that must be involved in these things, but some are not onl,y evasive, they are down right rude. They told her that the had sent me a letter two or three days after the interview, but would not say what it was about.

This weekend I have a phone call from my house saying that while I was away someone tried to deliver a package...A PACKAGE?!?!?! But no one had called my cell, and it is clearly printed on the top of the recieipt of the package note. I phone the package company...

...The woman, who after a lot of back and forth, and nearly calling me a liar, says that no one at the embassy package company would have told you when you were expecting a package...And that if someone at the embassy had told me it was going to five working days till I had a return package, then it would have been five working days. She had an american accent and seemed to know what she was talking about, well seemed until I realised that what she was saying was completely wrong. I asked her if I could arrange for this package to be delivered another time, to which she said 'yes'. I asked her if it would cost me an additional charge to which she said 'no'. I asked her when I should be expecting this package to be delivered to which she said 'Tuesday'...Hey - didn't she say they would tell us when the package was coming??? And it gets better!

Over the weekend my wife got me to cheer up, and I was entertaining this was all one great big problematic joke that I should laugh at - 'Ah, the beurocracy of it all, hahaha!' and that I might have actually gotten my visa...This was my state of mind last night while looking at cheap flights for thursday, friday, or my favourite a direct on saturday!

That was until today. Wifey phones up and makes some equiries about this supposed letter that was supposed to have been sent (18th). They give her more information, saying that it has something to do with her taxes, but will not say anymore.

Anyway, as it goes, she might have to find another sponsor. And it looks like another two weeks wait at the very least.

I dont want to scare you, but you should get this tax stuff sorted before interview. They told me I have a visa as soon as she sorts this out, but until this package, and hopefully letter gets here tomorrow, we won't know what is wrong with the application as far as taxes...and as all the brits know - boy did she pay taxes whil she was here.

I will let you know to the outcome sometime tomorrow. :whistle:

Samuel Beckett,

I am confused by your post. Did your wife finally file her taxes? You said you got a copy of her 1040 and other documents "all proving that she was living here in the UK, paying taxes, and living privately in modest accomodation." As a USC, she would be required to file a US tax return (most likely a Form 1040 with a form 2555 attached to exempt up to $82,400 from US taxes as well as any other attachments and forms needed) regardless of whether she lived in the US or not as long as she made enough money to be required to file, which $16,900 for a married person. If she hasn't filed or missed the 2555, this could be the hold up.
