how much money do you have to earn to claim your
children on income tax in Texas?

The state of Texas does not have an income tax, so I assume you mean federal tax.


If you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit, you should file a return to claim it, even if you didn't make much money. This credit is for any earned income from wages or self-employment.
