How do i know if i earned enough in 2018 to file a return for this employer?

ALL of your 2018 income has to go on your tax return -- even small amounts.  You do not pick and choose which W-2's to enter.. They all go on the same tax return.

Every W-2 that you received must be reported on your tax return, even if they are for small amounts.  Remember that each one of those W-2’s has your Social Security number on it, and that income was reported to the IRS by the employer.  You do not want to get in trouble with the IRS for under-reporting your income.

ALL of your W-2’s must be entered on the SAME tax return.  After you enter the first one, you click Add Another W-2.
