Remember to check her state of residence filing requirements. For example, here in PA, your required to file a return if your income was over $34, I've done quite a few children returns that had that much interest earned.

Wow! Thanks everyone for the help and advice I think I'll check out the TaxAide first and see what they say. And if need be, I'll also check out a CPA.

Thanks again!

Saw this blog post:

And it reminded me of this thread.

It'll be old hat for most here, but it's a fairly clear description of when a retiree needs to file income taxes or not.

Figured I'd post it in case anyone still needed it, or if someone did a search and ran across this thread.

For years my grandmother received 1099s for her meager pension and interest income and of course a notice on her SS but we never filed a federal or a state return because she didn't have sufficient income to require filing a return. It never was a problem. I don't think the IRS would bother sending a letter unless the 1099s that they receive for a TIN exceed a the minimum amount where a return is required.

There were some state benefit programs that required filing forms disclosing her income.
