I pull several thousand a year from my IRA to supplement that, I get a small pension of about $350/month (which just pays Medigap costs), and she gets a small amount from stock dividends.

If you're both over 65 you don't have to file if your gross income excluding Social Security is less than $21,800. That's the 2012 number; it goes up each year. With your several year history of zero tax it's likely you don't have to file at all unless you're reaching zero tax through itemized deductions.
