    No, it's unlikely that you would be required to file a tax return.

    start at irs.gov (maybe even order a booklet on your subject); and use one of the free online tax prep services. When you finish you will know whether you NEED to file or not; but anyone can file as long as the 1040 is not frivolous.

    No, it's unlikely that you would be required to file a tax return. However, if you paid qualified educational expenses that exceeded the amount of your aid, you could file one to claim an education credit, which may give you a refund even if you don't owe tax. In most cases, the parent of a dependent claims this credit if the student qualifies for it, but it's possible for the student to do it as well.

    If you are due a refund you have to file a return.

      What tax dollars?  Tax on an income of zero is zero dollars!  If you want to fill out a form to say so, then have fun.  It would be a complete waste of time.  The IRS knows you have no money.

    If you are a dependent the 1098T is used on your parents'/guardians' return.

    In your other post, you claimed that you had filed a Federal return.

    You may have already f***ed up.

    If you have no earned income, you aren't obligated to file.

    No. If you don't have income over a certain amount, or you don't owe any taxes, you do not need to file.
