Do I have to file tax?

I am a full time student and recently got a job. I'm 23 years old so I am still dependent. Do I have to file tax? How much do I have to make yearly to file tax?

Other answer:

Just because you are a full time student and only 23 yrs old doesn't make you a dependent. Also, if you don't file a tax return, how do you expect to get back the taxes that were withheld?

It doesn't matter how much you make that determines whether you file a tax return or not. If you have at least $1 withheld for federal or state income tax, you should file a return. For someone like you, it will take longer to write your name, address and SSN than to actually complete the form.

Bostonian In MO:
As a dependent if your gross wages are more than $6,300 you must file a return. If you have $300 or more in unearned income (dividends, interest, capital gains, etc.) and any earned income you must file a return. If your earnings are less you are not required to file a return however if any federal income tax was withheld from your pay you must file to have that refunded to you.
Pascal the Gambler:
You can file at any income level, not required until after about $6000 as a dependent.
if you got a job and they withheld income tax that you might not owe, you would want to file to get that refunded to you
you are allowed for 2016 as single and a dependent up to $6400 non taxable
yes if you mke over 6300 a year with tax taken out, of $400 year if it isn't.
