Default N400 - Tax returns

Hi folks,

I'm taking the plunge and filing my N400 and am pulling together the supporting documents.

Reading through the USCIS checklist, they say:
4. Documents referring to you and your spouse:
a. Tax returns, bank accounts, leases, mortgages, or birth certi cates of children; or
b. Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-certi ed copies of the income tax forms that you both led for the past 3 years; or
c. An IRS tax return transcript for the last 3 years.
I have copies of my tax returns but they're not IRS certified.

Am I right thinking that, in combination with bank statements and birth certificates they should provide adequate proof of an ongoing relationship?

Just need to get over this last hurdle and I never have to deal with USCIS again!

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

As long as you include a copy of the entire tax return (all pages), that will be fine.

Or you could order the free IRS transcripts which are fewer pages and are "official".

I doubt most people have IRS certified copies of their tax returns. They send the IRS the original and they keep a copy!

For naturalization purposes, the tax returns are not used as proof of an ongoing relationship. They are required only to demonstrate "good moral character".

One more question: I'm trying to work out the fee for filling. I downloaded one check sheet last week that gave the fee as $680 and another today that listed the fee as $725.

I'm assuming the higher fee is the current one?

Correct. The fee is listed on www.uscis.gov, Form N-400 page.
