Hi Tax Tim, I use to work but stopped. Do I now have to send a tax return for the last year if I do not get any income anymore?

Thank you for your response. I stopped work June 2012. I did submit my tax return for year 2013 for the time period that I still worked during that spesific tax year. I would like to know for tax return for 2014.

If you did not work in 2014 then there is nothing to submit so unfortunately you cannot claim a refund as you did not earn any income for 2014.
