Yes, you are above the filing requirements for Federal.  You did not tell us what state.

Are you a dependent on some one elses tax return?

Even if you're a dependent, you'll generally need to file your own 2017 tax return if:

  • Your earned income (money you made by working) exceeds $6,350, or
  • Your unearned income (interest, dividends, capital gains, etc.) exceeds $1,050, or
  • Your business or self-employment net income (gross minus expenses) is at least $400, or
  • Your gross income (earned plus unearned) exceeds the larger of $1,050 or your earned income (up to $6,000) plus 
  • $350.

If you are not a dependent and are single, you have to file a return if you have income over $10.400.

See IRS Pub 501  for more information.
