HOW MUCH MONEY CAN YOU MAKE WITHOUT CLAIMING IT ON YOUR TAXES

Customer Question

mY DAUGHTER HAS A PART TIME BABY SITTING JOB. How much money can she make before it's taxed

Because the money is earned income she would have to make in excess of the standard deduction for a single person, or $5,150. As your dependent she cannot claim her own personal exemption.

Because it is impossible for me to identify and consider ALL the relevant facts, this advice is not intended or written to be used for the purpose of avoiding penalties, and cannot be used for that purpose.
