  • Yes!!!! File!!! You do not need to file by law with an income that low but if you do, especially with 4 dependants you will most likely get all of that money back!

  • Don't you have to file regardless? And if you paid taxes in then there is a chance you will get some back.

  • I made 4,800 a year ago. I filed my taxes and claimed my son. I got back 4,500. Totally do it. I did mine on TurboTax.com. Got it back in 2 weeks.

  • You are required to file your taxes if you worked last year. There isn't a question if you made a lot or not, it's that you are required to file. It's the law.
