I know someone who works as a lawyer and has a background in finances. He explained to me that single individuals, by law, do not have to pay income tax unless they make over $13,000 annually. For couples (those who are married) the number is about $22,000. This is only if you, the person making under $22,000 are claimed by your spouse. Now I am wondering about this. He seems to believe this is true and considered a loophole people aren't meant to know about. Thoughts?

This is news to me. I do remember hearing something of the sort back in 2014. This was from a friend and I don't remember all the finer details of it. If it is true, I am sure there is more to it than this otherwise people would take advantage of this entirely. I mean taxes on $13,000 would be around $3,000.
