Depends if you are married, single and how many dependents. You will generally pay less than 10000.

Depending on how many tax credits, dependents, and/or deductions you may have, all of your income may be subject to tax or only a part may be subject to tax. Generally, people with low income pay very little in taxes or no taxes at all. You have to file your taxes if you file as single and make $9,350 or more in 2011. If you are unsure, you should file anyways to avoid any penalties and/or interests and you may receive a refund.

It is not that the income is not taxable, it is that the allowable exemptions/deductions offset any income to the extent of those exemptions/deductions. Therefore: Single under 65 $9,350 65 or older $10,750 Head of household under 65 $12,050 65 or older $13,450 married Filing jointly under 65 (both spouses) $18,700 65 or older (one spouse) $19,800 65 or older (both spouses) $20,900 married Filing separately any age $3,650 qualifying widow(er) with dependent child under 65 $15,050 65 or older $16,150
