Is it true you dont have to claim less than $10,000 on your taxes, even if its an early withdraw on your retirement? Do I need to claim the withdrawal on my tax return?

What can I not claim on my tax return? Do I have to input every form I receive in the mail on my taxes?

No, that is not true.

You are required to report all of your worldwide income on your tax return.  So, yes, you would enter any tax documents that you receive reporting income on your tax return. 

An early withdrawal from a retirement plan would certainly be reported on your tax return because you are likely to owe income taxes and an early distribution penalty. 

In some cases (such as bank account interest), you may have income to report and no tax document in hand reporting it to you.
