2019 Filing Requirements for Most People

In tax years before 2018, filing requirements were determined by adding the taxpayer’s personal exemption(s) and standard deduction together.  For example, in 2017, if a couple filed using the Married Filing Jointly status and under age 65, they would have two personal exemptions at $4,050 each, for a total of $8,100 and a standard deduction of $12,700, for a filing requirement of $20,800 ($8,100 + $12,700 = $20,800).  Given that exemptions have been eliminated for 2018 through 2025, the filing requirements are based on the standard deductions.  The filing requirements for the tax year 2019 are listed below.
