Hi there, I have been reading comments and suggestions on this forum for weeks and since my case has not been debated, I want to throw it hoping that someone may help.
I won the 2013 lottery with a case number that will be likely scheduled for interview between january and february 2013. The thing is I lived in US for a year on a J1 visa between 2005-2006. Whie there my sponsor IIE filled tax return on our behalf (all the scholarship recipients). I got a paper attesting that but don't know where I put it. We were also provided with a social security number (SSN).
When I lived US, I got hired as a consultant in my home country by a company based in New York. I was not officially an employee of that company. I was paid after completion of the job through bank deposit. I completed the duty between 2006-2009.
So, as a DV winner do I have to submit tax return documents to the embassy for 2006 until 2009? As I own a SSN, is it a requirement for me to fill tax return every year even if I am not a US resident?
Is there someone out there to help?
Thank you in advance.
