How much does an unmarried dependent student have to make before he or she has to file an income tax return?

If you are an unmarried dependent student, you must file a tax return if your earned or unearned income exceeds certain limits. Considering your income and marital status as single, your unmarried dependent student must file a return if any of the following apply:

1. Your unearned income was more than $2,600 ($4,150 if 65 or older and blind)

2. Your earned income was more than $7,850 ($9,400 if 65 or older and blind)

3. Your gross income was more than the larger of—

  • $2,600 ($4,150 if 65 or older and blind), or
  • Your earned income (up to $5,950) plus $1,900 ($3,450 if 65 or older and blind)

You may want to consider filing a return even if you do not have to in some cases, like to claim a refund of taxes paid. Consider reviewing IRS Publication 501 for more information on this topic.
