    Hi:

    They did
    NOT request "notarized" copies. However, they may have asked for
    'certified" copies. Contact IRS and ask. Probably too soon to get
    certified copies of the 2003 return.

      Take them to a notary.. It doesn't have to be a bank.

            I had my tax return notarized at a fed ex shipping place
            where they also have a notary.

            They notarized my 2002 return. I don't
            think it was something I had to do, since the I-134 is notarized, but I
            did it anyway, because the instructions that came with the k-packet said
            to submit a notarized copy of the most recent tax return. I only
            submitted my 2002 tax return. I also sent in the irs transcript.

            I
            might add that it does not say to submit the last three years returns
            which is a common myth repeated on immigration forums and is not correct
            for Manila.

              I was wondering about this because there are no signatures on my returns -
              they are filed electronically!

                Well, there is a digital signature, but I don't know how you would
                notarize that

                  this case?...

                    I
                    was wondering about this because there are no signatures on my returns
                    -
                    they are filed electronically! Well, there is a
                    digital signature, but I don't know how you would
                    notarize that

                    What the notary can notarize is that the tax return is signed
                    and for the person in question. This would be a Jurat that would need
                    to be notarized. Even if you file electronically, your tax transcript
                    will be available within 14 days of submission. What this means is that
                    after you send in the confirmation of electronic filing and the return
                    has been accepted, the information is uploaded into the IRS mainframe
                    within 72 hours and validated by internal check systems.

                      However, I vaguely
                      remember that when I orderd my tax transcripts over the phone, the
                      automated system said that it must be at least x months after sending in
                      tax returns before you could request tax transcripts.

                      Getting the
                      signature certified does mean that the tax return is correct or
                      legitimate. I somehow don't see how this would prove to the consulate
                      that it is legitimate. Only copies (certified or otherwise) of tax
                      transcripts (which the IRS has obviously accepted) would be considered
                      legit right? We really do need to clear up the myth surrounding the
                      whole issue of tax returns, vs tax transcripts, vs certified tax
                      transcripts, vs 3 yrs tax returns, etc..way too confusing..

                        Hi:

                        Your answer is
                        confused. A jurat and an acknowledgement are two diffrent things. I
                        can envision an acknowledgement on the signature on a copy but that is
                        clearly not a jurat.

                        I've never seen a request for "notarized" tax
                        returns. And that makes sense in that neither an acknowledgement nor a
                        jurat is applicable or meets the reason for supplying the returns in the
                        first place.

                          Speaking as a Notary
                          Public for the District of Columbia.

                          What can be done is to attach a
                          document attesting that the copy of the tax filing is a true and correct
                          copy (i.e., "Attestation of True Copy"). The tax filer would sign the
                          statement and the Notary would notarize the signature.

                            Hi:

                            That still does not show that the tax
                            returns are the ones that were FILED. And, as the notary, you don't
                            have access to the original to compare the copies with.

                            Government
                            CERTFIED copies will do that.

                              To
                              clarify: the ATTESTATION is signed by the Tax Filer who is stating that
                              the tax forms are a TRUE COPY. The NOTARY is witnessing the signature
                              of the Tax Filer who is stating that they are a true copy.

                              I am not
                              saying that the OP should use this in his situation as I am unclear as
                              to what he is asking but....

                              I used the attestion of true copy when I
                              had to submit my tax returns to the consulate for review (notarized by
                              another notary of course).

                              I have many years of experience with
                              immigration filings, corporation/apostille filings (embassy - State
                              Dept), etc. and we have used the Attestation for many things and have
                              *never* had a problem.

                              I know it sounds completely ridiculous and it
                              legally doesn't prove anything - just an additional red tape step for
                              the filer - but it works for many things.
