That depends on whether you have offsetting Education Expenses or not.

 In 2019, you do not need to file a tax return if all of the following are true:

  • Under age 65
  • Single
  • Don't have any special circumstances that require you to file (like self-employment income)
  • Earn less than $12,200 (which is the 2019 standard deduction for a single taxpayer)

 

However,  If there were taxes withheld it would be to their advantage to file for the refund.  Be sure that they show that someone else CAN claim them as a dependent.
