Do I Need to File a 1040?

I was told once you reach age 75 you no longer have to file Federal Income tax. Is this true?

Candy,
There’s no maximum age for filing. However if your income is below a certain level you don’t need to file.

“The IRS requires you to file a tax return when your gross income exceeds the sum of the standard deduction for your filing status plus one exemption amount. These filing rules still apply to senior citizens who are living on Social Security benefits. If you are a senior, however, you don’t count your Social Security income as gross income. If Social Security is your sole source of income, then you don’t need to file a tax return.” (source: TurboTax)
