My daughter is a full-time student, but she also made money working part-time. Does she need to file a return?
Possibly. If someone else claims your child as a dependent, she’ll have to file a return if :
- Her unearned income is more than $1,050
- Her earned income is more than $6,300
- Her gross income is more than the larger of these:
- Earned income (up to $5,950), plus $350. If she’s married filing separately and her spouse is itemizing deductions, she must file if her income is more than $5.
If no one can claim your daughter as a dependent, she’ll have to file a return if her gross income was at least:
- $10,300 if under age 65
- $11,950 if age 65 or older
- Married filing jointly:
- $20,800 if both spouses are under age 65
- $22,050 if one spouse is under age 65 and one is age 65 or older
- $23,300 if both spouses are age 65 or older
