Yes, please see below (she does NOT have to file).

In general, you must file a Maryland return if you are or were a resident of Maryland AND you are required to file a federal return. Information in this section will allow you to determine if you must file a return and pay taxes as a resident of Maryland. If you are not a resident but had Maryland tax withheld or had income from sources in Maryland, you must use Form 505 or 515, Nonresident Tax return. 

MINIMUM FILING LEVELS FOR TAXPAYERS UNDER 65

Single person (including dependent taxpayers). . . . . . . 10,400

Joint Return. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20,800

Married persons filing separately. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4,050

Head of Household. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 13,400

Qualifying widow(er). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16,750

IF YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO FILE A MARYLAND RETURN BUT HAD MARYLAND TAXES WITHHELD To get a refund of Maryland income taxes withheld, you must file a Maryland return. Taxpayers who are filing for refund only should complete all of the information at the top of Form 502 and the following lines: 1-16 22*, 29* 35-44 46, 48 

*Enter a zero unless you claim an earned income credit on your federal return. Sign the form and attach withholding statements (all W-2 and 1099 forms) showing Maryland and local tax withheld equal to the withholding you are claiming. Your form is then complete.
