Hey! I'm Carter I'm a CPA and can help you out.

PA's filing threshold is $33. So, she would need to file a PA return. You can find the PA filing requirements here:

http://www.revenue.pa.gov/FormsandPublications/PAPersonalIncomeTaxGuide/Documents/pitguide_chapter_04.pdf

Her mother can claim her on her taxes as long as she's the one who provided more than half of her support.

Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!
