I am a High School student and made $5834 do I have to file taxes?

It depends.

If you are claimed as a dependent on your parent's tax return -

  • you don't have to file if your W-2 income is $6300 or less. You may want to file just to get your withholdings back.  
  • you must file if your self-employment income (not W-2- but cash, check, 1099-misc) is more than $400

If you are not claimed as a dependent:

  • you do have to file if self-employed income is more than $400
  • if it's W2 income - no need to file unless to get your withholding back
