"Can you?" or " Should you?" The answer to "can you?": Many people will file a tax return, even though the income on the return was below the filing requirement. Even if you do not have to file a return, you should file one to get a refund of any Federal income Tax withheld. The answer to the "should": This depends on the amount of income you had during the tax year (both from a work and/or investment) and whether or not your parents claim you as a dependent. Online tax software can help you to determine whether or not you are required to file a tax return. See "Sources and Related Links" below the links to additional information about two online options for filing income taxes.
