Tax Filing Requirement


The minimum amount or threshold of income requiring you to file a federal tax return.

• 2023 filing requirements for most taxpayers

If you have income below the standard deduction threshold for 2023, which is $13,850 for single filers and $27,700 for those married filing jointly, you may not be required to file a return. However, you may want to file anyway.

Over 65 individuals and couples have slightly higher thresholds.

Different thresholds apply for dependents and those who use other tax filing statuses (like married filing separately).
