Hello. This is listed as an immigration question, but seems like a tax law inquiry. I will change the practice area so you can get guidance.
Every immigrant or LPR individual must file their income tax return.

Yours is not a question under US Immigration Law.

Generally, US citizens and US residents are required to file a tax return if they have gross income greater than the amount of their standard deduction and personal exemption, $6200 and $3950 respectively. However, I recommend you file a return even if your income is less, in order to qualify for low income tax credits, and to avoid later erroneous IRS assessments, as a filed return is closed for adjustments by the IRS after 3 years, but possible liability for late assessments for an unfiled return is never closed.
