Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer. We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you.
Is there any income other than Social Security? If so from where & how much?
total income for the year is about 18,000.00, s/s, and an ira.
As long as there were no income taxes withheld from either Social Security or the IRA then based upon what you have said, there is no requirement or need to file an income tax return.
If you have any further questions on this topic, be sure and get back to me.
