Petitioner needs to file taxes even if income not sufficient to meet the Poverty Guidelines. Petitioner may utilize the cosponsor’s income to meet the obligations of the Affidavit of Suppor.

As a petitioner, USCIS does not look at the income. They look at the income of the sponsor and co-sponsor if necessary. However, if the petitioner was working legally, with a work permit, tax returns should be filed even though the amount earned was under the limit. USCIS likes to see compliance with the tax laws.
