Hi. My name's Lane.

...

You would only file for a refund if you have some tax being withheld OR if you qualify for a refundable tax credit.

...

Refundable credits are tax credits (such as the additional child tax credit and the American Education Opportunity Credit) that can generate a refund even when no tax is owed.

...

But other than those, it would only be to get back any tax withheld, that you would need to file

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

I hope you’ll rate me (using those stars, or faces on your screen, by clicking submit) based on thoroughness and accuracy, rather than any good news / bad news content.

Otherwise I’ll receive no compensation at all, from JustAnswer.

Thank you!

Lane
