Dependent received 1099 after I filed my taxes

My son just got a 1099-NEC for approx $6k. I have already filed and received my return. Should I complete a return just for him as Self employed?

You don't include their income on your return. It would only go on their return if they are required to file one.  To file a separate return for your dependent you need to set up a new account.  Online is only good for one return per account.  You can use the same email address for 5 accounts.  They can probably use the Free Edition.  How to start a new online return

Be sure on their return they check the box that says they can be claimed on someone else’s return.  They have to file a return for 1099NEC self employment income and pay the ss and Medicare tax since it wasn't taken out like on a W2.

 

To report your self employment income you will fill out schedule C in your personal 1040 tax return and pay SE self employment Tax.  Here's a Schedule C  https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sc.pdf

 

You can enter Self Employment Income into Online Deluxe or Premier but if you have any expenses you will have to upgrade to the Self Employed version.  How to enter self employment income

Self Employment tax (Scheduled SE) is automatically generated if a person has $400 or more of net profit from self-employment.  You pay 15.3% SE tax on 92.35% of your Net Profit greater than $400.  The 15.3% self employed SE Tax is to pay both the employer part and employee part of Social Security and Medicare.  So you get social security credit for it when you retire.

Your sons income does not go on your tax return.

 

Your son must file a tax return.   Any self-employed income more than $400 requires a tax return and the SE tax (SS & Medicare) to be paid which is 15.6% of the net (after any expenses) SE income.
