My son lives with me and his step dad and he has no income and we are on SSI..He just got a refund from college.So does he have to fill out taxes.We take care of him..He has Fafsa so does he still have to file what happens if he doesnt want to file..
Possibly. The refund from college can be taxable income if it was from scholarships and grants so he should fill out the return, enter his 1098-T (to show the amount of the refund) and see if he has a tax liability or taxable income. If he does, then he will need to file.
It the refund was because of student loans and not scholarships or grants, then no he does not need to file a return.
