In the year 2010, I drew Unemployment benefits, Social Security Disability payments and I earned $7300.00 at a small part-time job. My total unemployment income was $8263.00, and $$9815.00 from Disability. Should I file with the IRS?
Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Unemployment benefits are considered taxable income, as is the amount you made at your part-time job. Whether you need to file is not just based on the amount you made, but includes other factors, such as your marital status, your age, and whether anyone can claim you as a dependent. This site will take you through the different factors to determine whether you need to file:

Even if you don't need to file, if either your job or Unemployment withheld taxes from your checks, you may want to file to request a refund.
