when do you know to include d in hybridized orbitals?

You include d when the regions of electron density is higher than or equal to five.
2 regions of electron density=sp
3 regions of electron density=sp2
4 regions of electron density=sp3
5 regions of electron density=sp3d
6 regions of electron density=sp3d2

I would start by first drawing the lewis structure that way you can easily determine the number of regions of electron density, then use the explanation above.
