I need to amend my return and be a dependent

If your return has been accepted, then you will need to amend your tax return by following the instructions in the FAQ article below. Please note: the person who is supposed to claim you as a dependent will need to file by mail.

Once you are in your amended return, take the following steps to change your personal exemption.

1)    Go to Personal Info > Personal Info Summary > and click Edit to the right of your name.

2)    Scroll down to Question 3 - Someone else can claim me on their tax return.  

               a.       If you select yes – someone can claim you

               b.      If you select no -  you claim yourself

If the dependent filed amendment and got it processed by IRS, can the person who is supposed to claim the dependent file electronically again after the first rejection?
