Income Requirements for Tax Filing

If a taxpayer's income is very low, then he or she may not need to file a tax return. Below is a chart of income requirements for tax filing. Depending on your tax filing status and age, a taxpayer may or may not need to file a tax return.

How to use the income tax filing requirement chart below.

  • Look on the left hand column for your tax filing status
  • Loon on the middle column for your age group, then
  • Look on the corresponding right hand column

If your gross income was at least the amount shown in the right hand column, then you will need to file a tax return to the IRS. However, if you make less than the amount on the right hand column corresponding to your age group and filing status, then you will not be required to file a tax return by the IRS. However, if you have tax credits due, you may want to file at tax return to get your refund anyway. The income tax filing requirement chart below can be found in IRS publication 17.
