Do I need to file taxes if I was unemployed all year?

I've been unemployed since 10/2009 by choice. Since I didn't receive unemployment checks, do I still need to file?

If you have no income to report you are not required to file a return.However, if you would have received unemployment checks then you would possibly have to file depending on how much you received.

So what did you live on? If you had investment income, or interest, those are taxable income.

If you have no income then no, you have nothing to file because you should not have a w-2 coming to you. If you receive a w-2 for any reason, however, file because not filing will mean that you are under-reporting and that will be a huge issue when they audit you in the next year.
