  • Being a sponsor with unfiled tax year 2000

    I'm sponsoring my wife (who is here on visit/change of status) and have a co-sponsor as well. In the affidavit of support it requires copies of taxes filed for last 3 years, but I didn't file in 2000(did NOT owe $). Should I just file late now with the IRS or can my co-sponsors taxes be sufficient? Any help or comments would be appreciated. thanks.

        If you are just getting started, it may be 2 years before you get an interview. we waited over 2 years. Which is fine because they gave my husband a permanent green card.

        The only income tax statement they really studied was the year preceeding the interview. If you have that one and a good job with proof of employment then you will be ok. They may ask for a letter explaining why you did not file 2000, unless your interview does not come up for 2 years, then you only need to have filed 2001-2003.

        If you are in a service center that is quicker, Then I agree with Aibolit, I would file that 2000 return. A letter stating that you did not file cause you did not owe will probably not fly to well.

        You want to look as good as possible to avoid any problems.
