Additional information on filing taxes: Simple Common Sense: The only time you actually do WANT to file is when the IRS says you don't have to! They don't do that because it's good for you. They do it because it is more likely to be good for them. Certainly if you don't have to file, NOTHING BAD, in fact only good things, can happen by doing so. Federal Taxes are the same throughout the country. State tax laws are specific to each area. Whether you have to file a tax return ( or pay tax ) depends, in part, on your filing status, deductions, amount & type of income . There are no such things as "start and stop" ages, not having to pay because of retirement or on social security or working from home or a student. It is all addressed as a matter of "how much TAXABLE income ." (Note: working isn't relevant either, as many people who don't work or are retired, or disabled, or old, or young, or in school, have income from many sources: savings, investments, etc. TAXABLE income is different than what you may otherwise think of as income . In most circumstances, you have to do many of the calculations needed to file a return, just to determine what taxable income may be). Likewise, there are no special or fixed rates for retired, student, doctor, sanitation worker, President, convict...whatever. The amount of taxable income after applicable deductions and adjustments determines the rate applied to your particular situation. The rate, as well as the amount, you pay changes as the amount of income does. You must file a tax return if you had net earnings from self-employment of $400 or more. This is your total self-employment income less the expenses paid in operating your trade or business, multiplied by 92.35%. If you weren't self-employed (paid on a 1099 or ran your own business) then you would always want to file a return to claim the amount withheld and shown on your W-2, which with lower incomes will always be refunded to you. If you are an individual who may be claimed as a dependent on another person's return, you are subject to specific filing requirements. Refer to the instructions in your tax package or refer to Publication 929, Tax Rules for Children and Dependents , or Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information , for the filing requirements for dependents.
