Phoenix, AZ asked in Immigration Law for Hawaii

Q: How to handle request for evidence ( tax transcripts ) knowing that I cannot make the deadline ? I may need 2 months.

I filed federal taxes a week prior to the interview and had copies of my returns at the interview, but wasn't asked to show them. At the end I was told I will get a notice in the mail about what to submit. I received a letter a few days later asking for federal tax transcripts and state taxes clearance. In the view of the government shutdown, I submitted the state clearance, copies of the federal returns and explanation that I cannot submit the taxes, because of the shutdown. Now , the deadline has passed, the government reopened, but the IRS haven't processed my tax returns yet. Looks like I may need two more months. What to do? Thank you.

A: All you can do is send in what you have and ask for an extension. You could speak with an immigration to handle the response, but there's not anything else he/she could do.
