Customer Question
If I made less...

If I made less then the minimum income do I still have to file?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None since my account told me last year I would not have to file since I quit work in 2015

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My income was 24,600 dollors

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

A person who does not meet minimum income guidelines is not required to file a tax return. However, $24,600 is above the minimum filing limit for every filing status, so you would need to file a federal tax return. This document has a table where you can see how much a person can make before they're required to file.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
