  • Yes, because you have a W-2 which means they reported the income to the IRS. Not to mention that you didn't pay taxes, they may want some of it. This happened to me to this year, but mine was only $350.

  • No, you don't have to file... read this, fom the IRS:

    File a return

    Three things must be considered when determining whether you have to file a return: your age, your filing status and your income. Generally, once you reach a certain income level, the law requires you to file. The amounts are adjusted annually for inflation.

    For 2008 tax returns, individuals younger than age 65 must file if they make at least:

    $8,950 as single filers.
    $11,500 as head of household filers.
    $17,900 as married couples filing jointly and both husband and wife are younger than 65.
