I thank you for your time,
unless you paid estimated taxes or withheld tax no need to file return as the smllc had no exp/no income to be taxable; just for reference, you do not need to pay self employment tax as you have zero income/exp on your sch C;however, you still need to pay fica social taxes on your w2 income.f you are filing as a sole proprietor and/or a self-employed individual, you generally have to make estimated tax payments if you expect to owe tax(after subtractions of nonrefundable/refundable credits or withheld taxes if you have) of $1k or more when you file your return;however,You do not have to pay estimated tax for the current year if you had no tax liability for the prior year
You were a U.S. citizen or resident for the whole year
Your prior tax year covered a 12 month period
