The Department of Homeland Security National Benefits Center mail about they need a request for initial evidence(I-485),I need to submitted a Form I-864 Affidavit of Support for the petitioner/sponsor.The I-864 has the one of the following deficiencies.
.Not signed by the sponsor
.Missing Papers
.I-864 revision is no longer valid.

Okay.

Not signed by the sponsor - self-explanatory. The I-864 is not signed by the person who is the sponsor; you want to make sure that it is actually signed by them.
Missing Papers - the notice should say what documents are missing. If not, please upload the notice so I can take a look.
I-864 revision is no longer valid - you are using an old I-864 form. Use the newest one - see here:

"I STRIVE FOR FIVE!" My goal is to answer your question to your satisfaction. Please rate with five stars (★★★★★) and click SEND. It does not cost anything extra to rate. You may need to scroll left/right/up/down to see these stars. Rating my answer the bottom two stars or failing to submit the rating reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct.

Hello

Okay.

Not signed by the sponsor - self-explanatory. The I-864 is not signed by the person who is the sponsor; you want to make sure that it is actually signed by them.
Missing Papers - YOU ARE MISSING SOME OF THE PAGES FROM THE I-864 IN YOUR SUBMISSION.
I-864 revision is no longer valid - you are using an old I-864 form. Use the newest one - see here:

The revision that I request when I call costumer service is,not longer valid this is all 12 pages,the newest revision 03/06/2018 is only 10 pages.

Right. So it sounds that you sent in the older version. Whether USCIS updated their I-864 shortly after you received yours, I do not know. What is evident is that a newer version has to be sent in; I provided the link to a direct download for it:

IRS and the W-2s?because I mailed only the W-2s of my sponsor.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What I mean the IRS and W-2s is different?

Yes.

IRS is the government agency overseeing federal taxes.

W-2 is a form issued by your employer for federal taxes; a copy goes to IRS.
