On the I-765 worksheet for DACA on the financial information, what do I list as my current annual income since I have been unemployed for the past 2 months?

Do I do the months that I worked or the amount for last year? Will my DACA application be affected if I didn’t file taxes?

You can indicate your current status as being unemployed.  However, if you are being asked for the income that should have been reported on the last year's tax return, you should indicate that amount.  Your application should not be affected if you are not now working or if you did not file taxes.
