A: Should be no issue. They want to see what your income was for the most recent tax year.

A: You will need to amend the federal tax return if you filed as “ single” when you are in fact “ married”. Filing the tax return with an incorrect marital status can be considered tax fraud.

Once you amend the tax return you can then present the document to USCIS.
