I'm eligible to file for US citizenship this month based on the 3 year rule. My husband and I have been filing our taxes together. I'm applying this month for citizenship however we haven't filed our taxes for this year yet as we are still waiting for our w2s and we normally do not do it till end of February. Am I ok only submitting the last 2 years of taxes with my application since we do not have the 3 rd one yet?
Yes you are fine but when you go for interview take the 2014 return with you.

Read the instructions carefully if you decided to do this on your own. It says that you must provide an IRS transcript or a photocopy of.... for the most recent tax year. And... if you believe that additional returns may help, you may submit for the past three years. Have an immigration attorney review all forms before you submit, it will be well worth it the time and aggravation you will have to go through if not filed properly.

If you have held the resident status for a period of two years and nine months, you can proceed to file the FORM N– 400 at this time if you are married to a U.S. citizen. If you have not filed the tax return for 2014, you will have plenty of time to do so prior to your FORM N-400 interview. Good luck to you.
You'll be OK ... just bring the 2014 return to the interview.
