My mother in law is my dependent and earns $0 income. Do I still need to file a tax return for her?

If she has absolutely no income of any kind, she does not have to file a tax return. It doesn't matter whether she is your dependent or not. She does not have to file a tax return for you to be able to claim her as a dependent.
