My husband and I have not filed a tax return since 2011

Customer Question

My husband and I have not filed a tax return since 2011 because we have no taxable income. In 2015 I won a slot for $1350 and have a Form W-2G. Do I need to file a return for this. I filled out a form and we did not owe anything.

Hello

You would not have to file unless your income was at the amount that required you file.

If your income (combined) was less than $21,850 (and at least one of you was over 65) you are not required to file.

If they withheld any tax on that winning you can file and request a refund.
