Does he still file taxes

If his income is ONLY earned income from wages - filing requirements in 2017 starts for dependents from $6300

So if his wages are less than $6300 - filing is NOT rrequired.

But even not otherwise required - if there are any income tax withholding from wages - he might want to file (as a dependent) just to get these refunded.

Let me know if you need any help with reporting.
