I hold a green card since 8 years. I have filed tax returns only for past 3 years. Do i need to file the remaining years as well

Asked over 1 year ago - Usk, WA

Have recently applied for my wife's green card and need to now submit affidavit of support but i am worried that i have filed returns only for three years which is what i need to submit to NVC. Does NVC review all past records. My income is above 125% of poverty line.
