Hi! I can't figure out if I need to file taxes. I'm only 20 so I'm new to this. I was an independent contractor for a company and made $5300 before they let me go for being in the hospital.
I saved all my receipts (gas for example - the co. was 65 miles away from me). I didn't have a chance to set any money aside as I wasn't working there long enough. Can I set up a payment plan with the IRS or file an extension? And do I even have to file? If I do, what expenses can i write off?
