Ellicott City, MD asked in Immigration Law for Maryland

Q: What do I show as my AGI in question 18 in form I-864? I'm a SAHM. File joint tax return.

Hello. I have a question about I-864 and I-864A forms. My husband is going to be a joint sponsor since I am a SAHM right now. Tax return transcript doesn't show the break down. It only shows the household adjusted gross income. I know that the amount i put in the answer in the form has to match what IRS shows in my tax return transcripts. My husband is filling out I-864A where he also has to answer the same question. Thanks!

A: You would list individual income. If you earn zero, put zero. Your husband should list his income. The tax returns along with W2s, 1099s and all schedules should be submitted. USCIS only looks at the AGI.
