    DEAD + 100.

    The ONLY time age is a factor in being REQUIRED to file a tax return is is you are YOUNG enough to be claimed as a dependent by your parents.

    There is none.

    You need to file every year that your income is high enough, up to and including the year that you die.

    Even if you are 120 (which is unlikely, because oldest living person in the world is thought to be only 116 right now), you still have to file if your income is enough.

    You are never no longer required to file merely because of your age.

    You are no longer required to file when your income is too low to be required to file.

    There is no maximum age. Depends on your INCOME. Someone with a decent retirement income could be 110 and still have to file.

    There is no age limit. It's based on the amount and source of your income.

    There is no age limit.

    Filing a federal income tax return is based on INCOME - type of income and amount of income matter - not how old the tax payer is.

    There is no maximum age. If you have income, you have to file. SS and investments ARE income. If you live on the streets, out of garbage cans, with zero income, no matter what your age - you don't have to file.

      Not everyone with income has to file. "If your income is below the amount of the filing requirement for your age, filing status, and dependency status, and no other filing requirements apply, you don't owe federal taxes on your income and you don't have to file a federal income tax return."

    As long as there is income from investments or annuities you will pay taxes until you die.

      You are on the right track, but the limit isn't that low.
