Do You Need to File a Federal Income Tax Return?
Based on the information provided, you do not need to file a Federal Income Tax return for this year unless you need to receive a refund of payments already made.
If you have taxes withheld for Wage or Pension Income and have less than $300 of unearned income (e.g. interest, dividends, unemployment compensation), you can stop your withholding by filling out a new Form W-4, Withholding Certificate or a Form W-4P, Withholding Certificate for Pension or Annuity Payments. You may obtain the form you need from our Forms and Publications Page.
Give Form W-4 to your employer and mail Form W-4P to the company that sends your pension checks. To stop withholding before another year starts, you need to file the Form W-4 or W-4P by early December.
Form W-4 - You must file a new Form W-4 each year to continue the exemption. The exemption is valid for one year only. Each time you change employers and file a new Form W-4 make sure you claim the exemption from withholding.
Form W-4P - Form W-4P stays in effect until you file a new one or an IRS Examination results in mandatory "backup" withholding.
