I need to file tax returns on my student fees for 2015-2016. Am single, student and didn't work during 2015-16. So do I need to purchase a product for filing.

Am an international student.

If you are an international student and you have no income, then you do not need to file a U.S. tax return. The tax credits that would otherwise be available to you only apply if you have income.
