This is connected to my last question which you can find here. To restate, I made $5,040 in "Wages, tips, and other compensation". Normally, I'm not required to file taxes, but I have decided to in order to get back the Federal taxes withheld. I was wondering, since I will get a $0 refund from my state and I don't owe anything to the state, is it OK if I only file a Federal tax return and not a state one? Thanks.



If your Massachusetts gross income is less than $8,000, you don't have to file a Massachusetts tax return.

This applies to you, so you don't have to file. The fact that you did decide to file a federal return is not relevant.
