Good afternoon Roseann,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Whether you must file a tax return depends on the amount of your annual income. The threshold at which a single person must file a tax return is $10,300 ($11,850 if you are over 65), and so if you earned less than that amount then no, you do not need to file a tax return for tax year 2015.Even though your income may not be taxable, if that income is above the threshold, then you still have to file---but there will simply be no taxes to pay. You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.I wish you and yours the best in 2016,Doug
