    If you earned less then $6,000 on a W2 last year, you are not obligated to file taxes. (however, if you earned that little or less on a W2, you're smart to file, as you'll get basically 100% of what you paid in back)

    with the earned income tax credit, you could even get back some of what i paid in.[​IMG]

    You say you didn't have a job. Did you have other income? Unemployment is taxable income now. It also makes a difference if you were claimed as a dependent by someone else. Were you?
