What is the minimum income needed to file taxes? Should I file as Single or Married Filing Jointly if my wife doesn't meet minimum? She has a 1098-T.
My wife and I always file jointly, but this year she only worked 8 months and made less than $9,000. Do we have to file her income (what is the minimum), and if we don't would I file as Single instead of Married? She is a college student and has a 1098-T. Would that make a difference in the filing status?
