How old do you have to be to file for income tax ?
There is no minimum age for filing for income tax return. Even if a person is a dependent, he or she must file the tax returns if his or her income exceeds the filing requirements. You can visit the IRS website or offices to get more information.
It is not the age. It's how much money you earned. Check with IRS to see if you earned enough that you must file.
I filed mine at the age of 14 I think. 1984.
You can file taxes at any age as long as you have a job.
