My US husband has not filed any taxes since 2003 since being in the UK. We now need these done for my immigration application. How long after we send them off can we get a transcript for immigration? Do they send a receipt that they've been filed?

They don't send a receipt. I filed 3 years worth on April 16th. I called June 26th and asked for transcripts to be mailed. They never showed up in the mail, although I did call to confirm they had been sent.

On July 20th I called them and they faxed them out to me (around 27 pages btw).

Anyway, you may already know this but since he will be backfiling, there are different addresses the returns are sent to, depending on which year it is. So for instance you might send 05 to Chicago and 06 to Austin, so might just want to check that on each year.

One other thing the IRS guy mentioned to me (for 04 I think it was) he just said that after XX date instead of sending it to the address stated I would have to send it somewhere else.

Anyhoo, based on that I would certainly give them a call (From outside the US call 215-516-2000) after you have looked the forms over.

Good luck!

In order to comply to the I-130 requirements, I had to file my tax returns for the years 2004, 2005, and 2006.

I did all of these at the same time, using the Income Tax Exclusion to reduce my owed taxes to 0.

As I recall, I sent in my tax returns on about Aug 19. On about Oct 12, I called the IRS about the status of my tax returns. They said they had already processed the returns by that time, and I requested tax transcripts to be sent to my home address. I also requested a fax of my transcripts to be sent, so I could e-mail the fax images to my wife as e-mail attachments.

On the transcript it said that the IRS received the returns on Aug 29, a little more than one week after I had sent them.

It also said the processing date was Oct 1 (or close to that date). By the way, the paper and fax versions of the tax transcripts differ slightly in the information they contain. However, I prefer the fax version since it can be sent through e-mail as an attachment (if your spouse lives overseas, they can print out the image of the fax and give it to the interviewer). However, the fax version, I believe, must be requested

by talking to a customer service representative. The paper version can be requested through the automated process, although it takes longer to arrive at your home.

In my case, the total time it took, including both mailing the returns and processing by the IRS, was about 6 weeks.

This would have been true even if I had filed only 1 return. I am confident that filing as many as 3 tax returns at once will not slow down the process, since you can use the same supporting documents for the Income Tax Exclusion, and the delay caused by the Postal Service will be concurrent for the 3 returns.

This is exactly what I did. The guys at the IRS took a photocopy of each return which they stamped and handed over to me, and these copies were sufficient for evidentiary purposes at the interview. No waiting at all, except to get into the Embassy!
