My housemate, even when she was working at a good government managerial job, never owed anywhere near $7500 in taxes. Maybe half that...
She either doesn't make much money, or she has a TON of deductions. My father, living on just his retirement income (pensions and social security, no IRA's), still pays about $4k/year in income taxes just to the Feds alone. He lives alone (Mom died years ago) and his home is paid off.
According to https://smartasset.com/taxes/income-taxes#DGtsCEeSaQ
, a single filer taking the standard deduction and personal deduction and making about $58k/year will just hit the $7500 threshold. Median income in NY state was a bit over $60k in 2015.
