Does my sister have to file taxes?
Asked by: Jesica Hogan
She is a student living off her financial aid (federal loans and grants) mostly, but she works from home on Mechanical Turk for some extra money. Their rules are if you earn over $ 600 with one requester they send you a form. She got one that says she had $ 834 “non-employee compensation.” Her total earnings on MTurk for 2011 were $ 1,168.41. Does she need to file?
MTurk doesn’t hold out taxes so she wouldn’t be getting a refund.
