Would it be sufficient to just provide the most recent tax year (2012) in Part 6 (13a) on form I-864 or should fill in all 3 ?

Asked 11 months ago - Baltimore, MD

I'm gearing up to submit the affidavit of support (I-864) ,but i'm wondering if its mandatory to submit the most 3 recent tax year information as requested in part 6 section 13a -13c. I'm the joint sponsor and i currently have a copy of only my most recent income tax return form (2012) , i can't seem to find the 2011 and 2010.

A point to note: They were filed , the only issue is that they have been misplaced and i can't find them

    Answered . It is not necessary to file 3 year's tax returns in many cases. The key is to show stable U.S. qualified earnings. The petitioner should have you consult with an immigration attorney to review income requirements.
