Assuming that you are single and under the age of 65, if you have earned in excess of $9,750 you must file a tax return. Be sure to coordinate with your parents, if you are still potentially on their tax return, to determine the claiming of the exemption and possible credits.

Ok there are many questions to get to the bottom of this but the very simple answer is yes...if you are a W2 employee and you made more the $5950. If your are is under 24, there are special rules, that your parent(s) may take you and claim your income....If you want to comment back I can help you more.
