How do I amend and add a w-2 form with income for a dependent on my 2020 finished tax form? I can't find where on the amend tax form. Can anyone point it out?

I thought I had removed my eldest child as a dependent though she qualifies but turns out for some reason that didn't happen. So her w-2 for 2020 isn't reported on my taxs as my dependent earned wages. I can't find anywhere in amend tax form

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

Or the Free File website.  In order to use the Free File program, you have to start it at a special website.  Click on the Orange button I Qualify, Let's get Started

Be sure on their return they check the box that says they can be claimed on someone else’s return.  If their only income is W2 and under 12,400 they do not have to file a return except to get back any withholding taken out.

Thank you so much.
Clicking the box for someone else can claim me on her tax returns was the key to sorting out my mess.
Very helpful!
