With regards to your message, yes, you will have to file a tax return.

Individuals are required to file a return if they meet over certain income thresholds. If you are a single filer, that threshold is around $10,000. Since you made more than that, you will have to file a return.

The good news is that once you file, you will likely be entitled to a hefty refund because the majority of your income will be excluded by your personal exemption!

Hope this helps,
