How much does an student have to make before filing income tax return?

Q) How much does an student have to make before filing income tax return?

A) According to the IRS: If you are an unmarried dependent student, you must file a tax return if your earned and/or unearned income exceeds certain limits.

  • To find these limits refer to Dependents under Who Must File, in Publication 501Exemptions, Standard Deduction and Filing Information.
  • Even if you do not have to file, you should file a federal income tax return if you can get money back (for example, you had income tax withheld from your pay; you qualify for the earned income credit; or you qualify for the additional child tax credit). See Who Should File in Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction and Filing Information, for more examples.

  1. According to the IRS – Some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons, including when a return:

    Includes errors
    Is incomplete
    Is affected by identity theft or fraud
    Includes a claim filed for an Earned Income Tax Credit or an Additional Child Tax Credit. See Q&A below.
    Includes a Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, which could take up to 14 weeks to process
    Needs further review in general
    We will contact you by mail when we need more information to process your return. https://www.irs.gov/refunds/tax-season-refund-frequently-asked-questions
