You can change your daughter's status to "dependent" under the Personal Info section.

 

When you file your amended return, in order to report that you were a dependent, follow these steps: 

1.       Open your TurboTax return. 

2.       Select the Personal Info tab. 

3.       Click the Edit icon beside your daughter's name. 

4.       Scroll down the page to item 3. A few other things we need to know.  Check Yes beside someone else can claim me as a dependent on their tax return. (See the screenshot below.)
