She may have been. Each year has their own money amount that applies to whether or not you must file a tax return.

In 2016 Married Filing Jointly if Both spouses are under 65 then the threshold was $20,700

One spouse 65 or older $21,950

Both spouses 65 or older $23,200

It could be possible that even with the $10,000 you were not required to file.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
