  1. That was my best guess on what the issue was. The fact that it was uploaded under a different Document Title. I really hope reuploading under this new title doesn't mean another 2 months of waiting. From what I have seen and heard, this will most likely be the case
  2. On January 25th, that is exactly what we uploaded. We followed that link and uploaded the Wage and Income IRS Tax Transcript.
  3. Hello everyone, I am beside myself with this whole process and I am in need of some help. I thought NVC was supposed to be the part that's a breeze in comparison to the USCIS portion of all of this. Please see below a screenshot of our Document submissions: The "W2 Combined.pdf" document submitted on October 20th, 2021 under "FORM W-2 WAGE AND TAX STATEMENT" was my wife's W-2s for two of her jobs. On January 25th, 2022 we received a "Case FE Review note" stating the following: Please upload and submit [my wife]'s most recent Wage and Income IRS tax transcript from 2020. A transcript can be obtained on the IRS's website: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. If you were not required to file a tax return, please write, and scan an explanation for not filing. If you filed taxes with your spouse, please also submit all of your W-2s and or 1099s. For more information, please visit https://nvc.state.gov/fin. She did not file her taxes with me. The "202012_Wage and Inco....pdf" document submitted on January 25th, 2022 under "FORM W-2 WAGE AND TAX STATEMENT" was her Wage and Income IRS tax transcript as requested by them in their Case Review note. 79 days later we have received another "Case FE Review note" stating the following: Please upload and submit [my wife]'s most recent Wage and Income IRS tax transcript from 2020. A transcript can be obtained on the IRS's website: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. If you were not required to file a tax return, please write, and scan an explanation for not filing. If you filed taxes with your spouse, please also submit all of your W-2s and or 1099s. For more information, please visit https://nvc.state.gov/fin. Notice that the note is the exact same as the last time so I am unsure what they are asking for and I do not want to upload the wrong form again and wait another 2-3 months just for them to tell me it's not right. I noticed that the "Missing" document type is now labelled differently as "FEDERAL INCOME TAX RETURN OR TRANSCRIPT". I'm not sure if that means anything. What do they want now? The tax transcript was already submitted, w-2s were already submitted. Really hoping for some help! Thanks guys!
  4. The asterisk next to net income is just saying that the field needs to be filled but, when I hover over it - it says "This is the amount on line 23600 of your partner's return, or the amount it would be if they filed a return." The "?" next to "Click here if you won't report income" says that "If you don't report our partner's income, you can't claim credits that are based on family income. These include: the working income tax benefit, the spousal amount, pension splitting, and provincial credits (like the Ontario Trillium benefit)." I would like to claim the Ontario Trillium benefit but, it won't let me if I don't fill out my wife's income. But, I don't know how to fill it out if all her income is in the US.
  5. I apologize - I didn't realize that. Yes, it is Canadian taxes. Appreciate you moving it into the correct forum. Thanks.
  6. Hi everyone, Firstly, I apologize if this is a duplicate topic. I read through multiple threads regarding taxes and although there was a lot, I couldn't seem to find one that was similar to my situation. Quick facts: This is regarding my taxes for 2020 as I did not file last year I am a Canadian citizen living in Canada and my wife is an American citizen living in the US I live in Ontario My wife is sponsoring me to the US and our case is currently at the NVC We got married February 14, 2020. We do not have any children We do not receive financial support from the government I am using Wealthsimple Tax (I believe previously it was called SimpleTax). These are some questions it asks me regarding my spouse: Do you want to prepare your returns together? No. Did you live together for all of 2020? No. (I lived in Canada and she lived in the US) Did you live together on December 31, 2020? No. While living apart did you support (or were you being supported by) your spouse? No. Was your spouse a non-resident on December 31, 2020? Yes. Did you live in separate principal residences or medical reasons? No. Was your spouse confined to a prison? No. When I scroll down the website as I'm filling in all the details, it says that I cannot claim the Ontario Trillium Benefit unless I report my partner's income. I have checked the box that says that I won't report her income. When I uncheck it (as in I will report her income), I get the questions in the attached image: I do not know how to fill in these details as she lives and works in the US and earns her income in the US. Hoping someone can help me with this if they have gone through a similar process. Thanks a bunch!
  7. Woow! That's so quick! Seeing people get DQd and their interviews scheduled gets me really excited for them because we all know how tedious and frustrating this entire process is. I just imagined myself having a March interview lol - that would be so nice! Congrats and best of luck!
  8. That's very unfortunate and extremely frustrating. It also seems to be quite inefficient. Wife and I have been apart for 3 years and I literally live on the border of US and Canada. It's crazy to me that this process takes this long. We did a mental calculation of when we would be DQ'd, get our interview date, and complete the interview. It all seemed to line up quite well and now it's looking like there's a strong chance it will be delayed another 3 months. Thanks for your response and the support! Congrats on the DQ! Do you have a rough idea of when you expect to have your interview scheduled? I know it varies by consulate.
  9. The form we submitted says “submitted” while the rest say “accepted”. I hope they speed things up.
  10. I was about to create a new thread asking about this but I'm glad to see one so recent. I'm in a similar situation. All of our documents were accepted on January 25th. My wife (US citizen) had uploaded her tax return (w-2 forms) which was also accepted however on January 25th, NVC left a note asking us to submit her Tax Transcript from the IRS website. I read that a Tax Return is okay to submit but the Tax Transcript is reviewed more efficiently. We immediately uploaded the transcript on the same day. It has been just over a week and we haven't heard anything. Concerned that we would end up right at the back of the line again, I called NVC today. I was on hold for an hour and a half. I was told by the customer service rep to refer to the NVC Timeframe page on their website which as of right now says they are reviewing documents submitted on October 26th. This would mean we are at the back of the line. I confirmed with him that even for an additional document submission where the rest have already been accepted, we still go all the way to the back? He said "yes, it's the same for everyone". @Siddsgal seeing your response has given me some hope that it doesn't take this long. I'm hoping some more members on this forum respond with their timeframe for submissions of additional documents just in case your situation was a one-off for whatever reason.
  11. That’s awesome!! My wife just applied for a Chase card and she was approved for it. She went to add me as an authorized user but she couldn’t put a Canadian address for me (as I am still in Canada at the moment). Are you saying she should put her US address instead?
  12. I think this is the way to go lol. My wife has an excellent score in the US. Wouldn't mind getting a solid head start for my score then. Thanks for the info!
  13. Can you explain a little more about the ITIN? My spouse and I have been married since February 2020 and I haven't filed my taxes for last year. I remember both of us being confused on how to properly file our taxes in our respective countries. I did hear of the ITIN number and how I have to apply for one. Do I need this number to do my taxes in Canada? Or does my spouse need me to have this number for her to file her taxes in the US? And how does having an ITIN play into the whole credit card and credit score scenario? Did you open a cross border banking account while you were in Canada with RBC? Then you opened a RBC US Visa card, or some other visa card? Was this US Visa card then helping you with your US credit score? Do you suggest I have my spouse open a new credit card and have me as an authorized user or should I go with this cross border banking route?
  14. Love that! Happy to see so many people on here with similar experiences. Makes this process a whole lot smoother. How do you think Credit Karma or other agencies know that your credit history from early 2021 was tied to you after you got your SSN? Maybe with personal information like age and DOB?
  15. Oh wow! So even though you were "invisible" since early 2021, it was still calculating your score. That's good to know! Thanks!
