teenager's job

Simple answer is zero.   Assuming that your teenager is your dependent, then you should claim the child as your dependent.  Since the teenager can be claimed as your dependent, then the teenager should NOT check the exemption box on his/her return.  If you both claim the dependency for the same SSN, then the second tax returns that hits the IRS will get a reject when processed.  That would likely cause you to go back and amend the teenager's return.
