Unless you had non-wage income, were in college, paid tuition, are 24 or older and not a dependent, no.

Anyone can file income tax who has a social security number. You may have to do it for disability or unemployment income.

Sure, but you won't get anything. You PAY income taxes, you don't get them. Youpaid no taxes, so there is nothing to refund.

if you have no income to report, of course not--that is to say, you don't have to, you can if you want but it would be pointless

If you have no income then you are not required to file, but it may be your benefit to file if you qualify for refundable credits. Look on the back of a 1040 tax form and see if any apply to you.
