Most likely, no.  The California filing requirements for residents that are claimed as dependents is if your income exceeds your standard deduction.  For dependents, the minimum standard deduction if $1,050 while the highest is $4,044 if filing a single return.  This amount is based on your earned income up to the maximum deduction.
