i485 filing and OVDI


Recommended Posts

My i485 was recently filed and I am currently under OVDI scheme to amend my tax returns and file my delinquent FBAR's ?

I am having to amend the taxe returns and file FBAR's at this time under OVDI. I have been negligent and failed unknowingly to show my foreign income but have not been willful in conduct.

Does this cause any issue for adjudication of the i485 petition ?

Does that still mean that there is an issue as OVDI is a self disclosure by the taxpayer and is not initiated by IRS ?

What will be the answer for question 2 on 485 form which talks about violation of law and fine ? Does OVDI mean a YES as an answer ?
