Pages 1 and 2 of the basic 1040 are normally sufficient. -- -- Senior Legal Counsel -- Capriotti International Law -- Legal disclaimer: This answer is offered for informational purposes only.

you're most recent tax return needs to be submitted with your I-864 in conjunction with your W-2 and employment verification.



employment verification? you mean employment letter from the company? Is that a must?? because I didn't see employment verification is a required evidence on the i-864 instruction.

Its not mentioned but at least here in Houston the DAO (District Adjudication Officers) who will be conducting the interview where ever you are at your local immigration office most always will ask for it, i.e. the employment verification letter thats on company letterhead, states your position, length of employment, salary, etc.


Read the instructions - they state that transcripts are acceptable, most recent returns and W2's.


In Las Vegas, the entire return including all schedules is required. So page 1 and 2 at the Las Vegas field office is not acceptable.
