Customer Question
Our 42 year old daughter...
Our 42 year old daughter doesn't live with us. She trains horses and has never had a job with a paycheck. Since moving from home where we would always see that she filed with the IRS showing she had no income. She has not done so in the past 10 years. What will the problem be if she ever has any money?

Good morning. If she does earn money in the future, she will have to pay taxes on it. If she had no income, she may have not been required to file but she could have, at her own discretion. As long as she can show she had no income over that time and/or she was not required to file, then it would not be an issue and she would simply have to pay taxes on the money she earned from that year. In addition, I have provided a link below, which she can use, that will help determine if she needs to file.
