Does a 17 year old with a box 1 total of 2384.04 need to file for 2018?

Not if that is his only income. He may wish to file to recover any withholding.

 

There is a dependent filing requirement. If he is under these amounts, he is not required to file.

For a single dependent, those amounts are

More than $12,000 earned 

(or more than $1,050 unearned*)

or over $400 from Self-employment

*Examples of unearned income are

  • bank interest
  • capital gain income
  • dividends
  • other income that is not directly related to performing a service

*2019:

You must file a return if any of the following apply.

1. Your unearned income was more than $1,100.

2. Your earned income was more than $12,200.

3. Your gross income was more than the larger of— a. $1,100, or b. Your earned income (up to $11,850) plus $350.
