11 Reasons to File a Tax Return Even If You Don't Have To

Filling out tax forms is a pain in the you-know-what. So why on earth would anyone file a tax return if they don't have to? Well, actually, there's one very important reason why – you might get a big, fat tax refund check in the mail.

People with income under a certain amount (see table below) aren't required to file a tax return because they won't owe any tax. But if you qualify for certain tax credits or already paid some federal income tax, Uncle Sam might owe you a refund that you can only get by filing a return. Think about that for a minute!


If you want to know more, here are 11 reasons why you might want to file a tax return even if you don't have to. Although dealing with taxes can be a real drag, it's probably worth it if you wind up with a much fatter wallet in the end. (Note that the IRS won't penalize you for filing a late return if you're getting a refund.)
