Tax Question (big surprirse)
I had a few part time jobs in college, and though I received W2 forms, I never did my taxes because my parents told me you don't have to file if you make under $2,000 during the year. I knew nothing about taxes, and still don't, so I trusted what they said. Well, I just today received a W2 form from my last college job, and Mom asked if I was going to file. I said no, cause I made under $2,000, and she said "So? You still have to file." ARGH! She totally forgot her previous advice and now I am worried as all hell. I can still file this W2 form, but I have one from 2005 and 2006 that I did nothing with, and I did not save them! Am I in trouble? Like, big big trouble? I've tried to find the answer on the 'Net and am having no luck.
