In brief, if you have no taxable income to report, you are not required to file a tax return.

That is what I thought, it is not like ssi, which is a taxable income right? In our state we are trying to apply for medicade health insurance and they are trying to lump it in with ssi, and if ssi is taxable then they do not belong in the same category and furthermore we should not have anymore problems with our income with them

SSI, without other income is not taxable.

Does a child care credit include as income? Then taxes will be filed?

Expert:  Tax.appeal.168 replied 1 year ago.
No, that is a credit, not considered taxable income.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok, so then file with labor and industries as a means of support, then mark a child care credit and then the interest on our house and that should be it if medicare allows us to receive benefits

Expert:  Tax.appeal.168 replied 1 year ago.
The child and dependent care credit is a non-refundable credit. Therefore, without taxable income, the credit will not benefit you .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok, so then it's just the interest we have to claim on our house

Expert:  Tax.appeal.168 replied 1 year ago.
You can file a return to claim the mortgage interest, but without taxable income, it will make no difference.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok thank you. I just wanted to make sure that we did everything properly, while I keep all of my records this year

By chance can you tell me what the poverty level is for the state of Washington ,,, for the medicare benefits

Expert:  Tax.appeal.168 replied 1 year ago.
I can't tell you what the poverty guideline is specifically for the state of Washington, but the information found on the following page will give you the federal guidelines. http://obamacarefacts.com/federal-poverty-level/ A positive rating is appreciated.
