The first step in the process is to determine whether you have to worry about taxes at all.  Usually, you must file a federal income tax return if your income is above a certain level or you wish to receive certain credits.  You can use the Interactive Tax Assistant available on the IRS website to determine whether you need to file a tax return.  Keep in mind, though, that even if you are not subject to an income tax, there are other taxes you should be aware of.  The most common types of taxes are explained on the next page.
