While children are the most commonly recognized type of dependent, the aged and disabled also fall into that category. Dependents are likely to have to file a tax return if they have unearned income above $950 or earned income above $5,700. The standard deduction for a dependent is the lesser of $950 or the regular standard deduction of $5,700.
