    Do I need to file for State Tax return?
    Hi,

    I am a student on an F-1 visa from india. I earned around $3000 in the 2004 calendar year. I will file for my Federal Tax returns, but do I need to file for my State tax too?

    I live in New York City, but my income was under the $7500 quota for a single individual.

    It is my understanding that I don't need to file for state tax as my state (and federal) income was less than $7500. Am I right?

    Thanks a million,

    Due to your low income, you are not required to file a NY state income tax return.

    However, if your employer withheld money from your check (as reflected on the bottom of your W-2), you will want to file a NY state income tax return to get that tax withholding back. Do not bother if the money withheld is less than $1.00.

    The NY City tax return is embedded in the NY state income tax return.

    Thanks for getting back to me,

    On section 14 of my W-2, there's an entry "NY-SD 4.15"... I don't want to file for that return if don't have to.

    So do have to file for a state tax return?

    Thanks

    The box 14 entry is for disability payments. Ignore it.

    Are there any entries in boxes 15, 16 and 17?

    15 State - NY and employers state ID number
    16 State wages - 828.70
    17 State Income tax - 0 (blank)
    18 Local wages - 828.70
    19 Local income tax - 0 (blank)


    I also have a 1042-S with the bulk of my income:
    22 State income tax withheld - 0 (blank)

    Am I saved from filing for NY state taxes?

    My teenager made way over the personal deduction amount and will have to file federal taxes. I understand how to do those. My question is how do I find out if she has to file Kansas state taxes.

    If she has to do the federal return, she will have to do the Kansas return.
