I have received payments through PayPal, but I made less than $400 this year from just that and that is my only source of income.

My parents counted me as a dependent on their taxes. Should they have included me?

Should I file my own separately?

If by "Should they have included me?" you are asking if they should have reported that income on their own income tax return then the answer to that question is "No."

You have not made enough money to be required to file an income tax return.

State filing requirements may be different.
