All of my income was exempt from tax under an income tax treaty with my home country. Do I still have to file a tax return?

 Yes. Even if you had no taxes withheld on your income because you were exempt from withholding because of the treaty benefit, you are required to submit a tax return to describe the treaty claim to the IRS.
