My wife and I met in college 3 years ago and got married last week. She is a USC and I'm an international student about to graduate. Because she was in college for a big part of 2015, her income was below the federal poverty line. My father-in-law has thankfully agreed to sponsor me and is filling Form I-864 as a joint sponsor. He is very busy and, due to some issues, had to apply for an extension on his 2015 tax return. Financially, he has had stable earnings for the past decade and has no problems proving income - we are just not sure how to do so.
He needs to file the I-864 and provide the past three years of his tax returns. You may need to wait until he filed his 2015 federal taxes. You can show W-2s or other income with your submissions along with the past two years of taxes, but more than likely, USCIS is going to want to see the 2015 returns as well and failing to provide the return initially could delay the process of your permanent resident application.

Be mindful he needs to file the I-864 and provide the past three years of his tax returns on p6 19a, 19b, 19c
That would be one way to do that, yes.
