I need to claim my mom as a dependent on my return but I already submitted HER return and it was accepted. Can i file a 1040-X on this site once her return is finalized?

I did not check the box on my Mom's return that says she can be claimed as a dependent by someone else. So i want to make that change by filing a 1040-X. My return was rejected for this reason because I claimed her and she already claimed herself. UGH! Does this sound like the right way to rectify?

Yes, if you filed your mother's tax return using TurboTax Online, you can file an amended return for her from the same account.  You should wait until you have received any refund expected, or your payment processed if filed with tax due.  For instructions on how to amend a return go to:  How to File an Amended Tax Return with the IRS

You do have to file a Form 1040-X amended return for your mother, but you still will not be able to e-file your own return. You will have to file your own tax return by mail. Even after your mother's amended return has been processed, the IRS does not update their e-file database soon enough for you to be able to e-file.
