I'm an L1 visa holder and the immigrant. My husband is an intern and has no income. We used my income for the i-864, and now the USCIS is asking to provide a copy of my text return. I have worked in the US for 8 months now, and therefore have not yet filed a tax return.
Would a letter explaining the above suffice? Would this create any issues in my applications?
Since you have only worked in the US for eight months and have not filed your income tax return yet, you can submit the I-864 with a letter explaining your situation. Additionally, send your 2-3 copies of your most recent pay stubs and a letter from your employer verifying your employment and income.
If you are scheduled to appear for an interview sometime next year, you can bring an updated I-864 with a 2014 tax return.
I agree with Attorney Tran's answer and suggestions. If your statements in the letter are supported by sufficient evidence, you should be able to meet a good moral character determination requirement.
