Tax Questions
 

When don't you have to file income tax return?

 

Consider the table of gross income thresholds below, if you make less than the gross income levels in the last column then you are not required to file income tax return. If you are self employed and makes less than $400 then you are not required to file income tax return. Some people file income tax return even if they are not required to do so because in doing so they may get tax credits and therefore refunds from the IRS even if they never paid taxes.
