Hi I mistakenly filed on my tax return that I could be claimed as a dependent, but my dad did not file me as a dependent. Do I get my 1200$? If not how do I fix this.

It depends.  If your dad qualifies to claim you, but he did not, you will still not qualify for the stimulus check.  To check qualification, click here: Credit for Other Dependents

Hi! So I’m in a situation similar, i accidentally filed as a dependent for the 2019 return, even though i work full time, i love on my own and pay all of my bills. I don’t qualify as a dependent, even though i mistakingly filed that way. My parents definitely didn’t claim me as a dependent on their 2019 tax return, so am i still eligible for a $1200 stimulus check? I make less than $75k also.

To qualify for the stimulus check you will have to file an amended tax return reclassifying yourself as your own dependent.

 

If you've filed your return and need to add additional information, then you will have to prepare an amended return in TurboTax.  I suggest you wait at least 3 weeks before sending it to ensure that the IRS does not confuse the returns.  You have three years to file an amended return.

 

If you used TurboTax Online, simply log in to your account and select “Amend a return that was filed and accepted.” 

 

If you used our CD/download product, sign back into your return and select “Amend a filed return.” You must file a separate Form 1040X for each tax return you are amending.

 

Amend ONLINE    OR     Amend CD/Download       Amend 2016 - 2019

 

You will have to mail the amended return.  The IRS limits the system to only one Social Security number or Tax ID  to be E-Filed.  This is to guard against fraudulent tax returns.
