How can I change from an independent to a dependent?

To correct your "Someone else can claim me as a dependent" question, follow the steps below. 

  1. Open (continue) your tax return.
    (To do this, sign in to TurboTax and click the blue
    Take me to my return button.)
  2. Click the Personal Info Tab
  3. Click Edit by your Name 
  4. Go to 3. A few other things we need to know
  5. At "Someone else can claim me as a dependent on their tax return" change the No to Yes.
  6.  At the next question, say that yes, they will claim you.

See if that helps. If not, as long as you haven't paid or registered yet, here's how to Clear & Start Over:

  1. Sign in to TurboTax Online and open your return by clicking the orange Take me to my return button.
  2. From the My Account dropdown menu, select Clear & Start Over.
  3. Answer Yes to Are you sure you want to clear your return?
  4. After your entries have been cleared out, we'll prompt you to select a TurboTax product so you can start over from the very beginning.
  5. If you're signed in under last year's login, we'll automatically transfer last year's info over if you select the PLUS upgrade, Deluxe, Premier, or Self-Employed. Federal Free Edition (without PLUS) does not include the year-over-year transfer feature.
