Haven't filed taxes or the past two years because of unemployment/full time student. How should I fill out Question 11 on i-864?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Lehi, UT

Hi there,
I'm filing for change of status after getting married to a US citizen. We got married in September 2012. I'm currently employed (after graduation) and has been so since March 2012 and I'm currently on F-1 OPT. I didn't file for tax returns for the past two tax years because I did not work from Jan 2010 to Feb 2012.
How should I fill out Question 11 on Form i-864? I have tax transcripts for the years 2009, 2008, and 2007. I came to the US in Jan 2006 on student visa.

Thank you in advance!
