If your gross income meets or exceeds the following levels and you are under age 65, you must file a tax return:
|Head of Household||$12,200|
|Married Filing Jointly||$19,000|
|Married Filing Separately||$ 3,700|
|Qualifying Widow or Widower||$15,300|
If you were 65 or older by the end of 2011, you can add $1,450 to the amounts shown above for single filers or a head of household. If one of the spouses filing jointly is 65 or older, add an extra $1,150. If both spouses are 65 or older on a joint return, you can add $2,300 to the amount shown, so the threshold would be $21,300. There is no additional amount available for married filing separately.
