Do I have to file taxes if I didn't work for all of 2017? I received $400 from the Red Cross for disaster relief for hurricane Harvey, do I have to claim it?

No.  You are not required to file a tax return and you do not need to report the $400 you received from the Red Cross.

If you are a student, you might want to file as you may be eligible for a credit if you had qualifying education expenses.  See this TurboTax FAQ below for filing requirements for the 2017 tax year.  Click "See entire answer" for the full page view.
