Now technically, you don’t have to file taxes if you make less than $6,100 a year according to Nasdaq. But there are tax breaks that every student should consider, especially the American Opportunity Credit where “students are eligible to claim up to $2,500 for the first four years of post-secondary education.” I don’t know about y’all, but that amount sounds like it’d come in handy (but spend it smartly!). So filing is really up to you. But think fast – there are T-minus two days ‘til the deadline.
