When I was single (divorced to be exact) and had no dependents anymore I always owed simply because I make too much. Now when I am married we file joined and we get some back. We only get some back because my husband pays spousal support to his lazy ex. Otherwise wed get nothing back. Again supposedly we make too much. No we dont. Roll our eyes.

Your employer should be providing you a tax form at time of hire and annually thereafter. On this form you can dictate how much you want taken off your paycheque for income taxes or confirm the default deductions. I have always chosen a higher amount to ensure I don't get a surprise come time to file my income tax return. I always then get money back. I recommend you doing the same when you get the form next time around. If your employer doesn't provide you with it, ask for it. I am unsure about rules in your country but in mine an employer is required to provide you with one.

Go to the federal filing site. They have the whole informations on what income & below doesn't have to file & they have the forms to plug in your numbers in. If that is all your income that should be very easy for you to do

Here is the link to the US fed tax form if you are in the US. If income is low & none paid & no return then filing becomes unnecessary.

Mountaindewed - What deductions were being taken off your pay cheques? Certainly your employer will have been obligated to do this. So know that you have already been paying income tax on each cheque (along with employment insurance and government pension as well). The only way this will not be the case would have been if you had completed a form to waive these things. That is the way here and I am very sure that is how it is everywhere. Forgive me if I am misinformed.

One of the best tips, going forward, that I could give you is to fix your W-4s and withhold $10 on Fed and $5 on State. Or more, but back in the early 90s my stepdad made sure that I did that when I started working.

Can you take your W2 and fill the numbers into a free online tax provider? The IRS even has links. That'll put your mind at ease.

To add. You've gotta figure he was fully blue blooded, a union Construction guy who lived through the last major tax reform in the 80s.

To add more. I survived this one. Adjusted my W4s under the guise of plausible deniability. I had more withheld and didn't notice much difference in "more in my paycheck"... We have an employee page at work and I played with my settings to make it so that I saw no changes. I played with single and head of household and withholding numbers. Never trust the government when they say more in your wallet...
