how important are filters?

Sorry, newbie question. I've seen a good deal on a 50mm F 1.7 lens but the filter thread is damaged so it can't take any filters....

I know this is a pretty basic topic to be ignorant on but my wife is the photographer in the house and all her slr experience is with a Pentax K-1000 50mm f2 that I don't think she uses any filters on. I'm looking to buy the DS soon...

How important are lens filters? Do you usually use them?
