Does DD19 need to do her own taxes?

DD19 worked a little this year at two jobs. She is still in highschool and is our dependent even though we no longer get a child tax credit for her.  1 of her w-2's came in and it was less then $400 and there were no taxes taken out of it.  The other will probably be about the same.  Now do we even need to claim that or does she have to do her own or what is up!?  I know I can look it up but I thought I would just see what you guys said first.

 she should do her own but claim 0 (zero) because she is a dependent.

A few years ago when i had a job for a month my father in law was working at H&R block and he told me that since i didn't make over a certain amount i didn't have to claim mine. but i think we did anyway cause i got some money back from the state.

It won't cost her anything to file her own, and with that small amount of income she won't owe anything. Just to cover her ass, I'd say have her file.

Last time I checked, if your income was less than $5000, you were not required to file. However, you do have the option of filing if you find out that you are due a refund. If no taxes were taken out and she didn't get a 1099, then I doubt it would matter either way.

so everyone thinks that she should file her own and not include her in ours?

You can't include her yours. You can't just add in random numbers from random w-2's.

I would have her do her own (ours we do through turbo tax... you can only run 2 people at a time with the free version)... she's 19, it's about time to start learning this stuff, don't ya think?
