You are required to file a federal income tax return if your income is above a certain level, which varies depending on your filing status, age and the type of income you receive. However, the Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers some people should file even if they aren't required to because they may get a refund if they had taxes withheld or they may qualify for refundable credits.1

It's important to bring identification documents like an un-expired photo ID such as a drivers license. You will also want to bring any tax and income documents you receive from your employer and others.
