does my dependent have to file

My daughter has a w2 from school employment and a 1099 from an internship. Total income is 3600. Does she need to file?

does my dependent have to file

She'll need to file a return to pay her self-employment tax (Social Security and Medicare taxes) for the 1099-MISC income (assuming she netted $400 or more). Please see this FAQ for more information: Do I need to file my own taxes if I'm a dependent?
