Can I claim my 2015 w-2 on my 2016 tax return ?

I filed my 2015 w-2 on my 2016 tax return, because for the 2015 tax year filing period I was a minor. For the 2016 tax year my college asked for verification of income. I have to amend the 2016 tax return but can I include the 2015 W2 even if I didn’t file at all for the 2015 tax year?

Why do you need to amend 2016 (besides taking off the 2015 W2)?

You still might need to file a 2015 return.  Your age doesn’t matter.  You can do 2015 for freeon the blank forms.  Here are some blank forms & instructions for 2015

In reply to VolvoGirl, my exemptions changed because someone else could claim me as a dependent. The person who could claim me did a 1040x and on my 2016 I put I was not a dependent

You need to amend 2016 and delete the 2015 W2 and anything else you need to change on it.
