For the affidavit of support i 864, to my file my card

This answer was rated:

Hello,, for the affidavit of support i 864, to my file my green card application. my friend is the one who gonna sponsor me with affidavit. but my friend cannot find her last year W2, can we apply without the last year w2, just show the current employment and salary certificate. Last year my friend filled w2, but she lost the copy ... can you help me with this ?

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

The I864 form requires that the sponsor attach a copy of their tax return for the 2015 tax year. You cannot apply without your friend providing a copy of the 2015 tax return. It is not enough to only show present income and a salary certificate.

If my friend cannot find the copy of her W2 ? is there any way that we can find online quicker ? or can we use anything instead of giving W2 printed copy ?
thank you sir

Hi,

The form asks for a copy of the tax return, not the W-2. Attach a copy of the tax return. If the W-2 is missing that should not be a problem.

Please rate my service so I am compensated for helping. It costs you nothing to rate me.

can we get the copy of tax returns online ? if yes , how soon we can get that ?
thank you sir

No, tax returns are not available online. You must apply to the IRS to get a copy of your return.

  1. If you need an actual copy of a filed and processed tax return, it will cost $57 for each tax year. Complete Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return, and mail it to the IRS address listed on the form for your area. Copies are generally available for the current year and past six years. Please allow 60 days for delivery.
  2. If you live in a Presidentially declared disaster area, the IRS may waive the fee to obtain copies of your tax returns. Visit IRS.gov and select the ‘Disaster Relief’ link in the lower left corner of the page for more about IRS disaster assistance.
  3. Forms 4506, 4506-T and 4506T-EZ are available at IRS.gov or by calling 800-TAX-FORM(###) ###-####.
