Dear Sir/Madam,

No. Under age 65 single person filing threshold is $10,400 gross income for 2018. You only need to file to obtain a refund of any income tax withheld from W-2 wages. 30+ years experience and further information is at Please contact my office if I can be of assistance to you or people you know. Thank you.
