Advice needed on NIW RFE

wrong tax form - I-485 could be rejected?

Aug 23rd 2018
My NIW was approved in 4 months in VSC.

When I was on F1, I filed 1040 instead of 1040NR for 4 years by mistake.
One of these was submitted along with a correct one (last year) for I-485.

I am wondering if this mistake can be a reason for rejecting I-485.

Thank you for the advice. I will ask my lawyer when she comes back to work.

Meanwhile, I will add more info.

1. My hubby filed for NIW. I am his dependent. My lawyer said I also have to submit my tax files.
